Moon Curser Dead of Night 2021

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAlways a big wine, Dead of Night has some smoky notes in 2021 that sit on the wine's best features, especially in the finish, and at this point, will likely only get stronger. The blend is a rich mix of 52/48 East Osoyoos Bench tannat / syrah. The entry is fully ripe and a touch sweet with well-managed tannin and a refined texture for such a big wine, but the finish is a tarry smoke-kissed affair that takes away from the final story. The oak regime mixes 225-litre French and Hungarian oak barriques (29 percent new) combined with remaining neutral oak barrels.
