Osoyoos Larose 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Osoyoos Larose, now firmly in the hands of sole owner Groupe Taillan (of Bordeaux), blends 62% merlot with cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, petit verdot, and malbec. Thick, dense and concentrated fruit is led by merlot's plummy richness, and structured somewhat by the cabernets. Dark chocolate, inky blackberry, cassis, bittersweet dark chocolate fill the brooding, savoury, full-bodied palate, framed with wood spices and ample wood-grain tannins. Very much in youth, with fine aging potential ahead.Tasted: 10 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 47.99 BCLS MB 46.06 Manitoba's Liquor Mart ON 47.95 LCBO QC 44.60 SAQ SK 58.30 NL 52.49 NLLC AB 45.99 private wine shops Producer: Osoyoos Larose Estate WineryDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
