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 decided to channel their passions into a carefully crafted family wine–Poppy. Founded on the principles of developing consistently elegant and approachable wines, a glass of Poppy is the quintessential California wine experience. OALS: TO IMPORT THE BEST EXPRESSIONS OF ITALY’S ENORMOUS RANGE OF NATIVE GRAPE VARIETIES.

Shrimp Enchilada with Pineapple Pico de Gallo 

Wine-Poppy Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands

 TASTING NOTES:  This focused, elegant Chardonnay’s aromas feature sweet golden apple, ripe citrus, tropical fruit and almond with touches of creamy yeast, vanilla and oak in the background. On the plate, the rich flavors are complemented by a light touch of toasty oak and refreshing citrus with mineral notes and bright acidity in the finish.

2nd Course
Three-Cheese Baked Pasta with Porcini and Pancetta

Wine-Poppy Pinot Noir Monterey

 TASTING NOTES: The mild spring and cooler summer in Monterey County give a chance of our Pinot Noir grapes to achieve the optimum maturity with great balance of acidity and flavor, and with deep color that is characteristic of Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir. The red fruit brightens across the palate, picking up raspberry and spice are balance by the French toasted oak aromas.  Soft and silky through the middle, this wine crescendo on the finish leaves a vibrant, juicy memory in the mouth, with proper acidity and a pleasant mouthfeel 

Entrée
Pork Ribs Vindaloo with Cilantro Chutney 

Wine-Poppy Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 

TASTING NOTES:  This wine displays blueberry, black cherry and currant flavors with nuances of licorice, violets and cigar box all wrapped together with a dash of vanilla and mocha. Medium to full-bodied, well-balanced, with soft tannins, this wine shows tremendous dimension, with a seamless finish that lingers throughout the palate. Pair with dishes more on the savory side, lamb and roasted meats. This wine is designed to drink well within two years of its vintage date however it will be at its best starting around 2017.

Dessert
Lemon Blueberry Cake
