WineScores' Review

Fragrant, muscular, balanced.
Moon Curser is known for having a diverse portfolio of rare varieties, including this Tannat. The first to plant this tannic French variety in BC, they continue to champion and finesse it.
The 2013 has the time it needs in bottle; the nose is fragrant with blackberries, dark chocolate and purple flowers atop leather, toasted brown spices, black pepper and beef stock aromas. It has notable suppleness on the entry and overall is muscular and a bit brooding and boozy. Nonetheless, it's wonderfully balanced and the tannins have integrated wonderfully.
It's wonderful to see how well they've managed this grape and given it time to properly mature before release.
The 2013s are sold out at the winery, the 2017 is available for $42.99

WineDiva.ca was launched prior to WineScores, in February 2004. WineDiva is the alter ego of Daenna Van Mulligen. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to a very serious passion for all things wine. WineDiva’s goal is to make wine fun, subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs need not apply. WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and drinking it all in, and her glass is always (at least) half-full.

WineScores is the more serious follow up to WineDiva.ca. WineScores was born from the demand to see wine writer Daenna Van Mulligen provide scores on her wine reviews. These are numerical scores based on a 100 point scale – an internationally recognized form of rating wines. These numbers provide a snapshot for consumers on how the wine reviewer views the overall quality of the wine. For more information on scoring wine, go to “about”.
