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:
Succulent, spicy, muscular.
The little brother to Le Grand Vin is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec & Petit Verdot.
Consistently savoury, this vintage seems to be more lifted; it offers dried herbs and a combination of sweet and peppery spices, tealeaf and cedar chips, violets, vanilla and wild berries on the nose. Supple on the entry it has espresso, dark chocolate, tobacco and roasted meat flavours that lead to a long and fresh finish.
Pair: Grilled or roasted meats, stews, puy lentils with savoury herbs, aged hard cheeses.

Readers rated this wine:
Succulent, spicy, espresso.
The little brother to Le Grand Vin is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec & Petit Verdot, in that order.
As is classic to this estate, the wine is dark and savoury, earthy and spicy with roasted espresso, tobacco, leather alongside black currents and plums. High-toast on the palate, sunbaked earth, toasted spices and black fruits with a bitter cocoa vein to the finish.
A solid wine - almost chewy but fresh.
Pair: Grilled or roasted meats, stews, puy lentils with savoury herbs, aged hard cheeses.

The little brother to Le Grand Vin is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec & Petit Verdot.
As is classic to this estate, the wine is earthy and savoury offering forest berries, cocoa, leather, burnt toffee, mint, soy sauce and pencil shavings on the nose. Molasses, soy sauce, cocoa, toasted spice and brooding berry flavours dominate the palate. Good overall length, structure and balance.
Pair: Grilled or roasted meats, stews, puy lentils with savoury herbs, aged hard cheeses.

Succulent, spicy, muscular.
The little brother to Le Grand Vin is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec & Petit Verdot.
Expect roasted rosemary, dried herbs, warm plum compote and toasted spices with dark chocolate and flame charred bell peppers aromas. It is smooth and woven; the succulent palate is an echo of the nose. Roasted spice and rich black fruit, pipe tobacco and cocoa flavours linger on a medium-length finish. A muscular wine with the same brooding lineage as big brother.
Pair: Grilled or roasted meats, stews, puy lentils with savoury herbs, aged hard cheeses.
