Osoyoos Larose is firmly under the direction of Groupe Taillan in Bordeaux, which suits its styling. The mix is dominated by merlot at 64 percent, followed by 9/14.2/12.7/5.2/3 cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, and malbec. 2018 is intense with plenty of power, and for the first time, some sticky tannins not generally associated with the label. The palate is stuffed with black fruit, cedar, pepper, a dusting of savoury south Okanagan sagebrush, and a bit of campfire. The finish is dry and somewhat astringent, suggesting it will need another three to five years in the bottle.
