WineScores' Review

Savoury, expressivet, chewy.
The Border Vines is Moon Curser's Meritage or Bordeaux cuvee: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Carmenere, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
A pretty red, it expresses bold purple berries, violets and vanilla, sarsaparilla and mocha with hints of wet cedar. The palate is juicy with chewy tannins, plenty of appealing fruit and a lengthy cedary finish.
Decant before serving and pair with grilled meat, hearty bean stews or aged, hard cheeses.

WineScores' Review

Fragrant, succulent, complete.
Dead of Nightis a blend of Tannat (Madiran's tannic red variety) and Syrah, both from the South Okanagan.
It is a fragrant red, redolent with sweet cherries and baking spices, plum jam and violets, sarsaparilla and mocha. Fresh and balanced, savoury yet sweet; it has a spicy cocoa and espresso finish

WineScores' Review

Fresh, firm, grippy.
This Osoyoos-based winery continues to produce a unique assortment of great wine and win kudos for them.
The Petit Verdot is inky and always laden with purple berries as well as violets, vanilla, baking spice, espresso and licorice. The palate is fresh on the entry and grows more powerful into the mid-palate; firm and chocolaty with expressive fruit and a grippy finish.
