Platinum Block 4 Pinot Noir 2016

2016 was a warm year in the Okanagan Valley.
Block 4 shows more red fruit compared to Block 2 which is blue fruit inclined.
The vines are 23 years old.
Dark cherry red in the glass with earthy flavours of cherries, dark raspberries, dried herbs and anice.
This wine has a lingering finish that stays for with you for several minutes. We pizza from scratch (our own dough) with local Matsutake mushrooms and thinly sliced local duck breast.
Life is good.

Laughing Stock Vineyards

Portfolio Merlot Blend

Found this 2010 Portfolio buried deep in my cellar. Sightly past it’s peak but drinking beautifully. Needs time to open up. Rich and deep with dark cherry, blackberry and spice flavours it paired nicely with a New York Strip roast. A delicious wine from a great vintage — 10 days ago

La Stella

Fortissimo Okanagan Valley Sangiovese Blend 2018

I love the bright cherry here throughout. On the nose, that cherry announces itself well, but the nose doesn't reveal everything because the nose is I think very Bordeaux. Black-red fruit at equal measure. On the palate, a lot more interest kicks off... Cherry both candied and fresh off the tree... Really the tannin here is a funny star of the show. It's very present though subdued. I like it! — 11 days ago

Viscous Riesling 2019

Not viscous! Riesling beauty here. Floral and petro on the nose. Peach and zest on the mouth watering, off dry palate. — 3 days ago

Blue Mountain

Okanagan Valley Pinot Gris 2020

The estate cuvee here... On the nose, paraffin wax and honeydew melon... On the palate, this gets into gooseberry and white peach. The finish is long white pepper. Quite nice and between this and the Reserve, among the best matches around for BC salmon in the summertime. — 17 days ago
