Poplar Grove Merlot 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPoplar Grove merlot is easy to like, with its inviting nose of vanilla and black cherry fruit. The attack is soft and round, very merlot, and the palate similar with plummy, black cherry fruit and licorice flavours and soft, well managed tannins. A solid effort that could use a bit more concentration and acidity to really sing out. Pleasant and ready to drink now with most grilled meats. The wine spends a lengthy 21 months in 100% French oak. In 2013 the blend includes 7% malbec and 4% cabernet franc.Tasted: 11 August 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
