Osoyoos Larose 2007 Petales d'Osoyoos - 88-90pts
Availability: Widely available in BCLDB stores
Cost: $25 (BC)
Date Tasted: June 11th, 2010
Tasting Notes: The Petales d'Osoyoos may be the winery's "second" wine to the powerhouse Le Grand Vin, but it's a fine wine in its own right. Definitely approachable much earlier than its big brother but built to last just the same.
The medium intense nose offers blackberry, licorice, dark chocolate, sweet sawdust, vanilla and oak aromas. Firm tannins support the concentrated dark fruits and toasted oak flavours that dominate the dry palate. Prominent acid and savoury notes make this wine very food-friendly. Pair with a grilled red meats or a nice roast. Will develop over the next two years and become a 90pts wine. Drink 2011-2015.
