Osoyoos Larose Pétales d’Osoyoos 2011

This wine firmly puts to rest any doubts one might have had that cabernet sauvignon could ripen in Canada.   Osoyoos Larose is a joint venture in the Okanagan Valley between Vincor International, Chateau Gruaud-Larose and certain other Bordeaux properties.  The wine here is the second wine of this estate, and it is sufficiently impressive to warrant looking out for the grand vin.  It has aromatics of cedar, blackcurrant and smoke.  The palate sees medium acidity, medium to long length, fine grained tannins and flavours of blackcurrant and soft cloves.  This is a very balanced cabernet that will reward your interest.
