Laughing Stock Vineyards Pinot Noir +28/09 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPinot for malbec fans, this punchy, potent, warming pinot packs a lot of power, in every way. Predominantly, Okanagan Falls it tips in 5% Naramata Bench fruit. After a whole berry ferment in stainless (20% whole cluster), it is aged for one year in French oak. Smokey bacon, roasted meats, is met with a wave of aromatic violets, baked plum, blueberry jam, and smoked plum. Tannins are soft, and the finish is smoked and short. None of this leads me to pinot noir or Okanagan Valley, but if you're looking for a smoothed, smokey, gutsy red for BBQ burgers, here you go.Tasted: 03 August 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 36.99 winery online/direct Producer: Laughing Stock VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
