Poplar Grove Merlot 2011

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMerlot remains undervalued, and frankly not all that well done in the Okanagan, but there is no reason we couldn’t do a better job as evidence by this Poplar Grove. This one hits many of the highs - the ripe, brambled, dark plum and medicinal cherry/blueberry notes only to be held back by its youthful, oaky somewhat hard tannins (press wine?) We love the concentration and while somewhat chunky this is a solid effort and can easily be tamed by richer, beef or lamb dishes at this stage. Heading in the right direction.Tasted: 10 August 2015Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct, private and VQA wine shops Producer: Poplar Grove WineryDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
