Osoyoos Larose "Petales d'Osoyoos", Okanagan Valley BC 2004
Readers rated this wine:
Osoyoos LaRose's little brother is big- meaty, burley and brawny. I suggest you decant it for at least one hour. Black cherry, plum, black current and leather aromas with dried fruit and earthy-woodsy notes. Intense on the palate with cocoa, tobacco, leather, spice and aggressive tannins that soften with decanting. Recommended eats are strictly protein based.

Osoyoos Larose 'Le Grand Vin', Okanagan Valley
Readers rated this wine:
Expressive, powerful, fresh.
Made from: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec.
Despite a change in winemaker after the 2012 harvest and more than a fifteen years of vine maturity, Le Grand Vin remains consistent in style. Typically a savoury wine, this brighter 2014 is my highest scoring of this wine, since inception.
Sunwarmed black raspberry and cassis, licorice, vanilla, dark cocoa, leather and tobacco aromas delight the senses. The palate is expressive yet powerful, fresh and somewhat textural. It also boasts a silky, glycerol-like weight and a smooth lengthy finish.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive

Readers rated this wine:
Toasted, dark, earthy.
Showing age.
Le Grand Vin is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
Aromas are prune, dried currents and cherries, toffee, balsamic, dark mocha and tobacco. It has a generous weight on palate yet the fruit is lean. Flavours of toasted spices, tobacco and leather meld together. Firm and still grippy tannins - acidity lends freshness.

Osoyoos Larose 'Le Grand Vin', Okanagan Valley
Readers rated this wine:
Substantial, earthy, potent.
Le Grand Vin is a premium blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec.
2011 was a cooler vintage and a late harvest of late October to mid-November (depending on variety). It is made from estate fruit from the very southern 80-acre Osoyoos bench. It was aged in new and one-year-old French oak for 18-20 months.
The aromas are kirsch, prune and raisin fruitcake, Turkish coffee, chocolate liqueur, treacle, pencil shavings and toffee. The palate is potent; fine spice, coffee, dusty plums, with bittersweet cocoa tannins lending a textural element. It is undeniably weighty and substantial, a bit dusty and earthy with good persistence. Balanced acidity keeps it from seeming too overripe - it walks a fine line though.
New release.

Osoyoos Larose 'Le Grand Vin', Okanagan Valley
Readers rated this wine:
Brooding, consistent, savoury.
Made from: Merlot 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon 24%, Petit Verdot 13%, Cabernet Franc 9%, Malbec 4%.
Despite a change in winemaker after the 2012 harvest and more than a fifteen years of vine maturity, Le Grand Vin remains consistent in style. Unarguably a savoury wine, it offers cassis, dusty red plums, dried roses, leather and bittersweet chocolate and pencil shavings. It is quite charred and brooding in the mouth presenting toasted oak and spice, dark cocoa, espresso and dried herbal flavours. It is still tightly wound and could use more cellar time to open up. The finish is long with a distinct saline quality.
