Availability: Now. Direct from winery or VQA stores.
Cost: $29.90 (Direct from winery)
Date Tasted: September 22nd, 2009

Tasting Notes: If you ever visit the Naramata Bench appellation in the Okanagan Valley make sure you visit the Poplar Grove estate as the property has one of the most amazing views on the bench. Driving up the lane towards the tasting room, you will pass the estate's Merlot block on the left, home to this wine's grapes.

The Poplar Grove Merlot shows a beautifully complex nose of dusty chocolate and cherry. There are chalky flavours of spice and plum on the palate with a very long finish. This is a wonderfully structured wine with well rounded tannins and acid. This will do well down the road.
