|Dan Trcka rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The 2006 Osoyoos Larose Le Grand Vin has a medium body with nice aromas of integrated black cherry/blackberry, prune, coffee, violets and cedar. It is tannic (decant for more than half hour) and the finish is medium to long. Even though would benefit from 1-2 years of aging, it can be drunk now and definitely can be cellared for the next 10 or so years. I find the 2006 vintage much more appealing than the 2005 one, as it is less perfumed with floral aromas and more infused with fruit flavours. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts. Tasted Oct/10.
