Poplar Grove Merlot 2000

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe merlot for the 2000 is harvested from the home vineyard at 15.2 per cent alcohol. Huge improvement on the nose here compared to previous versions with ripe cranberry and smoky leafy vanilla undertones. Big smoky sweet cherry fruit marks the entry before it finishes slightly acidic and dry. Nice improvement in style.Tasted: 01 March 2003Tasted by: Prices:
