LaStella 2009 Maestoso (Osoyoos Lake Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $100

Alcohol: 15.2%
Production: 148 cases
Date Tasted: October 16th, 2012

Tasting Notes: The Maestoso is a massive wine that seeks to knock your socks off with its unapologetic, Old World, heavy tannins and bone-dry texture. Comprised of 100% Merlot sourced from old vines on the Osoyoos Lake and Golden Mile benches producing intense dark berry fruit, huge ripe tannins and a touch of cool menthol. This wine needs a further 5-7 years to mature in order to properly appreciate the nuances of fruit, terroir and oak that are only barely perceptible today beneath the tannins. Bottled promise. Drink 2016-2019+.
