Opolo Mountain Zinfandel Paso Robles 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points California Grapevine: Medium ruby; attractive, briary, jammy, cherry, pomegranate, and red berry fruit aroma; medium-full to full body; forward, rich, supple, jammy, red berry fruit flavors with a hint of residual sugar and a creamy mouthfeel; medium-full to full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Leaning to a late harvest style and ready to drink now. Very highly recommended. 16.1% alcohol; 100% Zinfandel; released Fall 2012. (Feb 2013)

This great disparity in temperatures enables the fruit to enjoy a much longer “hang time” and encourages high sugar levels and concentration of flavors. Read less
