Merlot Blend

—VINTAGES#: 626325
Osoyoos Larose Le Grand Vin 2009
This is 58% Merlot, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. The wine was aged 20 months in French oak, with 60% of the barrels being new, 40% being one year old. Dark in colour and concentrated in texture, this wine still shows its youthful tannins. Decanting helps reveal aromas of sage, blueberry and cedar with lush layers of plum and black currant. Score - 94+. (John Schreiner, johnschreiner.blogspot.com, March 31, 2014)
