Tasting Notes: Following the Bordeaux tradition of using the best grapes for the Chateaux's flagship wine and then using the remaining grapes for another release, this "Second Label" wine from outstanding southern Okanagan producer Osoyoos LaRose is a fantastic Meritage blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.
An inky-garnet coloured wine with intense aromas of dark fruit, licorice and pencil shavings on the nose. The palate offers developing flavours of nibs, dark fruit, vanilla, leather with exciting spicy notes. Good tannins and acidity will allow for further development yet the wine very approachable now with patient decanting. Drink now through 2012. - LC
