Exceptional, expressive, plush.
Moon Curser is named for gold-smugglers trying to cross the Canada, U.S. border under the cover of darkness during the gold rush era. Often the brightness of the moon would foil their plans and they would be caught in their illegal activities.
Dead of Night is a blend of Tannat (Madiran's tannic red grape variety) and Syrah, both from the South Okanagan.
You'll relish the ripe purple fruit, vanilla, licorice, mocha and baking spice on the nose. The palate is similarly expressive; it is supple and plush. Generous fruit in the form of wild purple berries are layered with gobs of chocolate. An exceptional showing with wonderful freshness.
