Here's an unusual blend for Canada, made from equal parts tannat and syrah. Tannat is a rare variety in North America, better known as the tannic red grape responsible for the wines of Madiran in southwest France and also as a signature grape of Uruguay. The astringent tannins have been kept in good control by Moon Curser, a fine winery known for growing offbeat European varieties. The wine is full-bodied and juicy, with rich berry intensity and underlying nuances of tobacco, cedar and invigorating spice. Perfect for rare duck breast and other juicy-pink red meats. Available direct from the winery, mooncurser.com.
