Moon Curser Dead of Night 2009

British Columbia, Canada
2045 days ago

Timo reviewed this wine:

The Dead of Night (50% Tannat, 50% Syrah) is full of old-world licorice and bold fruit on the nose. The tannins are nicely balanced and there’s a sublime toastiness that reflects the winemaker’s finesse with oak. At $38 a bottle this isn’t an every day wine, but definitely worth the price tag for a special occasion or if you’re feeling serious. A gold medalist at both the 2011 Los Angeles International Wine and Spirits Competition and 2011 San Francisco International Wine Competition.

Timo reviewed this wine:

Violets and vanilla under a blanket of red and black berries. Licorice and cloves on the palate. Powerful tannins. A silver medalist 2011 Intervin International Wine Awards, used to be called Six Vines under the Twisted Tree brand (because it includes all six Bordeaux varietals), and is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (29%), Malbec (23%), Carmenère (23%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (1%).

Birch leaves and a lakeside sauna. Aged in concrete, this one's unique and elegantly delicious. Highly recommended!

Timo reviewed this wine:

Spicy, peppery, toasty. A gold medalist at the 2011 All Canadian Wine Championships, and a silver medalist at the 2012 International Wine and Spirits Competition and the 2011 Intervin International Wine Awards, is another Moon Curser wine that tangents off from the norm, the Syrah was aged in Hungarian oak.
