5 stars "Deeply coloured with a peppery, vanilla note behind the floral and blackcurrant aromas; elegant, more St. Emilion in style. Score - 5 Stars (out of 5). (Tony Aspler, www.tonyaspler.com, A Wine Lover's Diary, Feb. 20, 2008) "

"A more muted and plummy nose with cedar notes. However it really opens up with some aeration, showing more fruit. Fresh and zesty on the palate - acidity is high and there's fresh plum fruit and other red fruit. Fruitier and riper than the 04, but quite smooth already. Some secondary notes including hints of licorice and tobacco. Vanilla and smoke on the finish. This is the first batch of the newer style and Osoyoos Larose viticulturist Alain Sutre considers this a "feminine" wine. "

"Osoyoos-Larose 2005 Le Grand Vin ($44.95 - #0626325) – floral, blackberry, cassis, vanilla, cedar and a whole lot more … needs time to open up fully, say 3-4 years, and when it does it’s going to be gorgeous." Best 2010-2014
