Poppy Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
A rich and full-bodied wine with aromas of black cherry, sweet boysenberry, and spicy cinnamon, compliment the ripe flavors of blackcurrant and plum. Adding a small amount of Syrah and aging 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. Pair with dishes more on the savory side, like lamb and roasted meats.
86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Syrah. Poppy is a brand owned by the Monterey Wine Company. Like the state flower, the golden poppy, California's finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are from small vineyards found in surprising places. The grapes for this Cabernet were grown in premium vineyards esteemed for producing fruit with rich, complex flavors. Great attention to detail was given to the making of this wine to ensure its smooth, full-bodied style, with elegant flavors to complement finely prepared cuisine. We recommend opening this Cabernet between now and the end of 2017.
