Two from 2013 Laughing Stock Vineyards (Okanagan)

  • Blind Trust Red ( full bodied Bordeaux blend)
  • Portfolio (like more of a right bank Bordeaux blend)

Firm tannins on both.  Nice wines, but after a decade, still a bit young for my taste.

Tried the 2012 Portfolio last night.  A bit more advanced than the 2013 we had a few weeks ago.  Another nice wine, showing well with a thick steak, twice-baked potatoes and a chopped salad. 

OK.  You get a pass.  But others?

Just for you, WIML ... recent interesting bottles over the past 4-6 weeks:

Cremant de nashik tropicale.  This rose sparkler comes from India.  Made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and chenin blanc.  I do not know the percentage of each. Was $40 in an upscale Indian restaurant here.

a little strawberry nose, light rose petals.  
never had this before but will try to find it at the store. 86-88 points
