South of San Francisco and just north of Carmel lies some of the most resplendently beautiful landscape in North America. With it’s cool temperatures and abundance of sunshine, Monterey is ideal for growing pinot noir, and the Silva family and their Poppy Cuvée show us why. Delicious with red fruit (raspberry!) and toasted spice from elegantly integrated new French oak, Poppy offers a juicy palate with silky tannins and a lengthy finish. A versatile wine, it is marvelous with a variety of foods—or simply to sip.
