  Add My Review

Price: $39.95

Drink: 2009-2020

Bottle size: 750 ml

Alcohol: 13.8%

Wine Type: Red Wine

Winery: Osoyoos Larose

Natalie's Score: 90/100

A fabulous, full-bodied red with classic lines and structure. Blends Old World finesse and New World power and flavour beautifully. This is a cellar keeper, but if you insist on drinking it now (it is hard to resist), then decant for 1-2 hours.

Le Grand Vin food pairings: creamy cheeses, slow-cooked braised beef stew, roasted harvest vegetables.

Reviews and Ratings

Coveted by collectors, this wine is meant to age.

Grapes are hand sorted upon arrival at the winery, destrmmed and crushed. Fermentation occured in 17 stainless steel tanks for 10 days between 28 and 33 degrees celsius. The caps were hand punched during pigeage. Following fermnentation, the free run wine is slowly transfered into oak barrels. It was aged 16 months in a 60/40 split of new and one year old French barrels.

The wine is a blend of 69% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Malbec.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
