Laughing Stock Vineyards 2006 Blind Trust - 90+pts

Laughing Stock Vineyards 2006 Blind Trust (Naramata Bench) Okanagan, BC

Availability: Direct From Winery (sold out). Private wine stores
Cost: $29-33

Alcohol: 14.3%

Tasting Notes: Deep purple appearance. The nose has white pepper, blackberry, graphite, and tobacco. The palate was young with vegetal, mixed berries, pepper and high tannins. The finish was spicy and long. Overall this was a well balanced and well structured blend with strong tannins and good acid. This wine will age well for 3-5yrs.

Laughing stock has a neat concept for their Blind Trust. They do not advertise the varietal blends for the wine, instead you have to find out what it is under the capping. Unfortunately for this particular bottle it was missing so it is a bit of a mystery still. I would surmise that it is heavy Cabernet Sauvignon(65%?) with Merlot(30%?) and Malbec (5%?). HC
