Laughing Stock Vineyards Pinot Noir +08/10 2017

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAs is the Laughing Stock way, this is a big, showy, in-your-face pinot, clocking in at 14.2 degrees declared, and feeling every bit of it. From two vineyards in Naramata, this was fermented whole berry in oak puncheon and stainless before 16 months aging in French oak (35% new). Soft, spicy and soupy, pouring a lightly bricking hue, this is filled with ripe raspberry, baked cherries, cinnamon and nutmeg, and crushed florals to a warming finish. Requires a chill, and some large meat to mitigate. Hopefully an earlier pick and lighter hand in the future, also.Tasted: 27 August 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 34.99 winery direct Producer: Laughing Stock VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
