I'm not surprised that Osoyoos Larose appears to have easily disposed of the hottest year ever in 2015, turning it into a fabulous New World wine as the French often do in California, Chile and Argentina. OL is the original single vineyard in BC, raised from the beginning to be a vineyard that was built for the blend. The rootstock and clone combinations were selected in Bordeaux, shipped to Canada, and planted by hand in high density. The 2015 is certainly the ripest, roundest version we have tasted but without the sugar or sweetness you might expect. Expect a full-bodied black and red fruit entry that maintains its poise on the palate amid perfectly textured tannins. A great start for a wine that can age effortlessly for a decade before it begins to reveal its true story. Le Grand Vin is fully owned by Groupe Taillan after buying out Constellation Brands. The 2015 blend is 71 merlot, 12 cabernet franc, 8 cabernet sauvignon 5 petit verdot and 4 malbec. Score - 93. (Anthony Gismondi, gismondionwine.com, Oct. 16, 2018)
