A rich and full-bodied wine with aromas of black cherry and spicy cinnamon, compliment the ripe flavours of black currant and plum. Adding a small amount of Syrah and ageing the wine on a mixture of American and French oak imparts intensity and depth as well as sweet spices such as vanilla and hints of nutmeg.
Producer Information: Poppy
The state-of-the-art ‘Poppy’ winery is located in Monterey and was founded by the Silva Family in 2003. The goal was to channel their passion for making wine into a highly focused crafting of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. Poppy combines age-old winemaking traditions with new world techniques, this is a classic California style and makes it one of the best. When deciding on a name, the Silva’s wanted something that spoke to the great state of California where their family had settled so many years ago. One day, while looking at wild poppies growing amongst the vines, the name was born.
