Pétales d'Osoyoos 2015

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaEasily the best Pétales yet, led by 76 percent merlot mixed with 11.5/10.5/1/1 of cabernet sauvignon/cabernet franc/petit verdot/malbec. The wine has a soft, enticing demeanour thanks to a big percentage of Osoyoos merlot offering up sweet, dense black fruits and tannins with a drier, far more interesting profile than many North American versions of this blend. The combination of dusty tannins and plummy fruit with just a touch of cedar and pepper and only an illusion of oak that should quickly dissipate over the next 18 months gives this red a big thumbs up for wine lovers. Never as firm or dry as its big brother Osoyoos Larose, but then you can drink this much earlier in its life. Very Bordelais and I am very okay with that. Serve with grilled beef.Tasted: 22 June 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 28.99 BCLS QC 28.00 SAQ MB 26.00 NS 29.00 SK 29.00 NF 31.00 Producer: Osoyoos Larose Estate WineryDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
