Vancouver Sun - Anthony Gismondi: B.C. wine of the week, wine to cellar and calendar items

B.C. wine of the week 

Moon Curser Tannat 2013, Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley

$37.30 | 90/100

UPC: 626990152781

This is the best Tannat we have seen from Moon Curser, and it has improved in my estimation since the National Wine Awards, where it showed very well. It’s big and chewy but with some softness and plenty of black plum fruit, cloves and a dusting of baker’s spices. You can drink this now, preferably with a rare steak, but I would wait a decade to see the real story (and it will be just fine under screw cap.) The fruit is grown on the very warm Osoyoos East Bench, where Moon Cursor says the sandy soils help mitigate the excessive tannins. Read More Click Here
