Hold! Cellar! Laughing Stock’s Portfolio. Do you quaff it now, enjoying the thoroughly ready-to-drink big Bordeaux-styled red? Or do you lie it down for a couple of years, hoping your asset pays off? Either way, this one is a winning investment.Luckily, Laughing Stock owners, winemakers and founders David and Cynthia Enns didn’t get the memo that BC can’t produce big reds. Thus, their aim to produce the highest quality small production wines from the Valley was a high risk stock that has paid off in spades. Again with the 2007 vintage, all five classic Bx varietals are used here: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. The result is a richly textured, very structured sipper. Big dark berry fruit, smooth vanilla and dark cocoa blend seamlessly to the finish. And if you can wait, you’ll be richly rewarded, as this will prove even more plush and elegant in 6-8 years time.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean) now (but I’ll bet the bank on 3.5 stars in a few years time) OkanaganRed WineWine Reviews SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
