Poplar Grove Winery 2008
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.
Natalie's tasting note, score, food pairings and recipes for this wine
Reviewed June 22, 2012 by Natalie MacLean
Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Aromas of white pepper combine with intense blackberry & floral notes. Flavours of coco, blackberry & orange mingle with a sage-herbal background. Secondary notes of graphite & briar fuse with a thick, rich mid-palette. Strong ripe tannins supported by good acidity give the CSM excellent structure. Only available at the winery tasting room or to Poplar Grove’s Wine Club members.|
