Osoyoos Larose le Grand Vin 2015

Member Review by zufrieden:

Aside from The Reference by Blackwood Lane (2006, 2007 vintages, in particular), this is the purest, most approachable red Bordelais-style wine from British Columbia ever crafted. Dark cherry red in colour, with a bouquet of cherry, ripe plums and a hint of vanilla extract (light oak treatment), and an entry of soft tannic underlay, sweet, pure cherry-plum and cooked pie-like flavours, this wine is a Roman Triumph. Finish of long length promises about another 5-7 years cellaring (at least), but why bother? This wine is delicious now. 93.

The 2014 edition of Osoyoos Larose le Grand Vin is another triumph; the sweet plum nose opens generously an hour after opening, adding a dense chocolate and cherry bed. The purity of the entry is astounding; with bitter chocolate, vanilla, and perhaps cranberry (dried) adding to a plummy confit flavour. There is some well-integrated (not harsh) tannin that promises further aging (5-7 years), but the wine is wonderful now. Superb value and an icon of BC winemaking. 93.

The Osoyoos Larose just keeps improving, and the 2009 edition is as good as any of the predecessors with a cedar bark - sweet cherry nose with a hint of black earth and pencil lead. Unbelievable mouth-filling flavours of cherry, cake spice and bramble berries with a hint of vanilla on the finish. As a Bordeaux should be, but often isn't. Superb value. 92.
