Moon Curser Carmenere 2019

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaCarmenere may still be a rarity in the Okanagan (0.1% of total plantings), but it’s showing promising results, especially on warm sites like the Osoyoos East Bench, where Moon Curser has sourced this wine. The fruit is a bit juicier here than the previous vintage. There's a combination of black and blue fruits, with dried mint, sagebrush, and a dusting of oak spices from aging in French barriques (31% new). Even with the elevated fruit ripeness, this is more medium-bodied than full, and it's not quite as concentrated as last year. The trade-off is that it's soft and ready to drink, making this worth discovering now.Tasted: 12 July 2021Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 42.99 winery online/direct Producer: Moon CurserDistributors: BCWineshop
