Osoyoos Larose 2009

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAlways restrained and the 09 OL is a peppery, waxy, roast beef, vanilla, coffee scented red with black cherry, mint, cassis and orange peel aromas. Full, round, dry, concentrated palate with ripe but grainy tannins that need time to disperse. More coffee, tobacco, liquorice, meaty notes mark the palate with vanilla, cassis, cranberry, celery, savoury, olive flavours. A very fine effort but a big structured wine that will need 3-5 years to mature in bottle.Tasted: 24 July 2013Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 40.00 private wine shops AB 40.00 fine wine boutiques ON 40.00 consignment - Vincor International QC 40.00 Producer: Osoyoos Larose Estate WineryDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
