Tasting Notes: The Legacy is Naramata Bench producer Poplar Grove's signature wine and it is a stunner. A meritage blend of Merlot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, and Malbec. This dark garnet wine offers delicate aromas of fresh floral and blackberry with flavours of floral and licorice on the palate. Smooth, well-structured tannins complement strong but tamed acidity which will make this wine the perfect cellar keeper for special occasions.

Writing that a $50 bottle of BC wine offers good value may be a difficult thing to read but this wine does deliver the goods and does represent good value for the complexity of taste on offer. Truly an Icon Wine of BC and one of our favourites.
