Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Osoyoos Larose Le Grand Vin, composed of 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot that was aged for 20 months in French Oak, is a medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense notes of red and black currants, black cherry, violet floral notes and vanilla. It is tannic (decant for 1-2 hours to loosen up the tannins and to blow off cooked egg notes) and has a long finish. Cellar this one for few years to mellow out the tannins; drink 2015/16 - 2020. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL (once decanted), 90 pts. Tasted Jan/13.
