Pétales d’Osoyoos is the second wine of BC winemaker Osoyoos Larose. It is 82% Merlot, with 14% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, and small amounts of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Deep ruby-red in colour, subtle aromas of plum, blackberry and black currant fruit are backed by a twiggy, earthy depth. Dry, with firm acidity and balanced alcohol, the palate is shaped by rich, ripe tannins that give substantial weight. Oak is a minor presence, adding breadth rather than flavour (no new oak is used), and the finish is stony, drying and salty. This big, bold red still has some varietal character, and represents the southern Okanagan very well. • Tasted 2017-08-05 • LCBO id#276741 • Find it at your nearest LCBOCHARTON HOBBS INC (Agent)
