Shady Offerings from Moon Curser....
In the vines at night...
Moon Curser Dead of Night
"Every one is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody"
Mark Twain

Dammitall, ...our cover's been blown!

We are doing a very poor job of staying undercover. This newsletter probably doesn't help either.

Here's the scoop: our new Moon Curser releases are now available on line, at our Osoyoos wine shop, and are trickling into select retailers and restaurants.

Regrettably, a few rogue reporters have decided to break the silence about our endeavours. Here's what they had to say:

Jurgen Gothe, Georgia Straight:
Moon Curser's outstanding, top-tier wines come with a distinctive design...

John Schreiner, on Dead of Night 2009:
The wine comes in a bottle with a vivid, even scary, silkscreened label. Get over it. This is a delicious blend. 92.

Tim Pawsey, North Shore News:
Judge these wines by their covers...

A few wines that you might find of particular interest are:

Dead of Night 2009- a powerful blend of Syrah and Tannat, one of a kind in Canada. Gold Medal winner at the 2011 Los Angeles International Wine Competition.

Viognier 2010 -  this elegant Rhone varietal just won Silver at the 2011 Northwest Wine Summit.

Border Vines 2009 - a highly sought-after Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It was just rewarded with precious Silver metal (others consider them medals) at both the 2011 Los Angeles International Wine Competition and the 2011 Northwest Wine Summit.

And there is more hidden in a dark corner of the winery....
Afraid of the Dark bottle

Afraid of the Dark 2010

Our Rhone blend of Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne. Floral aromas of honeysuckle, grapefruit,  peach and apricot, with hints of melon and ginger. Crisp and fresh on the finish.

John "What's it to y'a" Schreiner rates Afraid of the Dark 90 points.
Tempranillo bottle


This Spanish varietal crossed the border and is not going anywhere. Red cherry, violets, earthy notes of sage and mushroom. Long finish with a spicy note at the back of the palate.

Tim "Everything to Declare" Pawsey calls it "layered, complex and structured".
Dead of Night bottle

Dead of Night

A powerful red blend of our best Syrah and Tannat. Rich, medium bodied with a nose of violets, dark cherry and blackberry and whispers of cedar and plum. Flavours of ripe dark fruit, chocolate and plum. A long and lingering finish.

Can't name names, but a guy with the initials "J(urgen) G(othe)" states that Dead of Night is " an intense wine" with "massive, dark aromas".
