Laughing Stock 'Blind Trust' Red
|Availability:||In stock (6)|
Grapes are handpicked and hand sorted both by cluster and berry upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation is done mainly in stainless steel, but also using oak fermenters and extended maceration on some lots. While both Blind Trust and Portfolio, our flagship blend, are treated exactly the same for the first 15 months, the selection process is about making Portfolio the best it can be, while making the Blind Trust approachable and better suited for drinking early-on. Tough decisions indeed, especially when each vintage has 200 barrels with 65 varietals from a dozen vineyard blocks. This is an approachable wine early on but can also be cellared 5-7 years.
If you want to blind taste the Blind Trust, read no further. Spoiler alert: 39% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Syrah, 12% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot to create a multi-layered, complex wine.
