Poppy Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Not heavy handed but graceful and velvety like great Pinot Noir can often be. An abundance of spicy fruit and a pleasant matrix of soft tannins.

Poppy, located in Monterey Wine Country, was founded by the Silva Family who have spent over 45 years diligently tending to the land of the beautiful Salinas Valley. In 2003 the Silva family endeavored to channel their passions into a carefully crafted family wine. Poppy would be founded on the principles of creating consistently elegant and approachable wines- the quintessential California wine experience. By controlling grape sourcing and operating a state of the art facility, Poppy has blended age old winemaking traditions with new world techniques in the manner that has made the California wine industry great. When deciding on a name the Silva’s wanted something that spoke to the great state of California, where their family had settled so many years ago. While looking into the vineyard at wild poppies growing amongst the vines the name was born. What celebrates the state of California more than its golden blooms, the Poppy, a proud symbol for our great state and this great wine. Enjoy a glass of California. Enjoy a glass of Poppy! Salud, from the Silva family to yours! Read less

Soft red nose with light spice and cedar. On the palate, it's got nice easy flavors of plum, cherry and dusty spices. Light wood notes. Some cranberry. Good acid. Easy drinking. 87 pts.
