Pétales d'Osoyoos Larose 2013


I've written previously about this producer from the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia in Canada, and 2013 vintage is another good release.  Although a merlot dominant blend, it's very much a cru bourgeois in style, or closer to home, it reminds of a Yarra Valley cabernet blend from a very good producer.  The 2013 blend is 82% merlot, 14% cabernet sauvignon, 2.5% malbec, 1% petit verdot and 0.5% cabernet franc.  In the glass, the wine has aromas and flavours of blackcurrants and presents with fresh acidity and a lovely medium bodied balance.  Lovely drinking.  (Region: Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada, Rating: Good to Very Good, Drink: now to 2025, Tasted: Jan, 2017)
