Poplar Grove Winery Merlot 2007
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:
|Decadent aromas of cherry, cassis & chocolate. Long lasting tannins overlay flavours of cherry, blueberry & vanilla. A touch of sage & spice appear on the lingering finish. Aged for 21 months in French oak & 9 months in bottle prior to release, the 2007 Merlot is complex, round & exhibits clean, well-balanced fruit, tannins & acidity.|
