    December 10, 2021 - Meritage blend blind tasting with buddies, wine #3. Winery created by a couple from a financial industry hence the name of “laughing stock”. A blend of 48% Merlot, 32% CS, 14% CF, 4% Malbec, and 2% PV, aged for 20 months in FR oak (48% new). Deep garnet red, ruby hue. Intense aroma of blackcurrants, blackberries, balsamic, violets, dried tomatoes, tar, vanilla. Full body, rich black fruit flavours with chocolate and herbal notes, saline hints, soft tannins.

    August 20, 2021 - Deep ruby red colour. Nose has hints of berries, undertone of vanilla. Soft on the mouth with well balanced tannins. Needs time to open and suggest decanting for at least a half hour. Long finish to this wine.

    June 20, 2021 - A luxe and diversified Portfolio (2017).
    Q1: Dark cherry, rich blackberry and baking spice meet the nose.
    Q2: Velvety fruits on the palate with cocoa and pleasant caramel tones from the virgin oak.
    Q3: Tannins are woven elegantly and don’t overpower the symmetry. The acidity is mild.
    Q4: Closing (finish) is long.

    Beaucoup de fruits noirs, mures et cassis avec
    un peu de poivrons et de tabac.
    Les tannins sont serrés et la finale
    hyper longue nous laisse sur un peu de chauffe.
    Jeune, à revoir!

    April 17, 2021 - Another very good BC red Meritage blend from 2017 (Nota Bene & Red Icon have showed well recently). Admittedly, a PnP, but good aromatics right out of the gate. Nice dark red fruits evolving throughout the evening in the glass. Still a tad young, slightly grippy tannins with refreshing acidity. Medium plus body and finish. Paired well with roast chicken and rice pilaf.

    November 3, 2019 - Drinking this wine young, but have 5 other bottles to drink to watch how this wine changes. Dark ruby red in color. Notes of black fruit and licorice. Dry, med body, med acidity, med tannins. I have had older vintages of this wine, and even though it is nice now, I am sure this will be amazing in 5 - 10 years.
