Osoyoos Larose Red Bordeaux Blend Okanagan Valley Vqa le Grand Vin 2006
Nice deep, Bordeaux cherry red color. Nose dominated by Merlot and gives the typical notes associated withe Right Bank wines; fragrant and redolent of wild choke cherry and blueberries. In the mouth, the wine has the depth and texture of some lesser Pomerol chateau - but without the (sometimes) earthy grit of the old world examples. Nice, lean tannins making for a delicious, red-fruit finish with a hint of tobacco. This wine will age another 5-7 years. Tasted at the 2010 Vancouver International Wine Festival
