WineDiva's Review

NEW, pretty, pristine.
IMBZZL is a new retail exclusive second label from Laughing Stock Vineyards. As you may recall, Laughing Stock was purchased by Arterra Wines Canada a couple years back.
Marketing explains this wine as a "...little darling with a lot of attitude and 100% Okanagan grown. A play on imbibe & embezzle, IMBZZL wine are bold, unique and expertly crafted - you'll feel like you just pulled off a sneaky steal when you get your hands on a bottle."
The three wines under this label are: Ruse Rose; Fast One - Red Blend; Double Cross - Pinot Gris.
Syrah dominant, the 2020 rose is peachy-pink and suggests pretty notes of watermelon and sweet cherry, orange blossoms. honey and pink grapefruit. It has a pristine character and is off-dry (3g/L) with flavours of red berry, citrus and lavender soap with a hint of wild herbs. It's a bit hot, which makes sense coming in at 14% alc., and a candied finish.
