Pétales d'Osoyoos

Pétales d'Osoyoos 2013

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is the best Pétales yet, appearing to be less of a second label and more of a stand alone wine from Osoyoos Larose. The 2013 vintage helps to give this a serious tone full of savoury, spiced black fruit aromas. The palate mixes bitter black cherry and espresso notes with bits of tobacco, grilled meats, cherries, and smoke. Not quite as firm and dry as the Osoyoos Larose, suggesting it's time to start drinking this. Perfect for grilled steak. The blend is merlot dominated, with cabernet sauvignon, malbec, cabernet franc and petit verdot.Tasted: 22 June 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.00 BCLS QC 28.00 SAQ MB 26.00 NS 29.00 SK 29.00 NF 31.00 Producer: Osoyoos Larose Estate WineryDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
