Opolo Mountain Zinfandel Paso Robles 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

If you are one of those that believe bigger is better, read on. Appropriately named both for its bountiful bouqet of fruit, as well as where the grapes are grown, Opolo's most refined Zinfandel ever captivates the nose with pomegranate, fig, and cranberry. Raspberry jam dominates the mid-palate nuanced by savory butterscotch overtones. Vanilla, white and cayenne peppers, and cinnamon spice makes for a lively finish. Opolo's Mountain Zinfandel isn't known as America's most decadent red for nothing.

Nearly all of Opolo wines are estate vintages, meaning that they are made from grapes grown by the winery. The central operation comprises of 98 rolling Westside vineyards in as idyllic a setting as the beautiful Paso Robles area offers. The climate here owes a great debt to the nearby Pacific Ocean. The cooling effect of the marine layer accounts for temperature swings – the diurnal range – that can be as great as 50 degrees from afternoon highs to morning lows. 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

Extremely dense, jammy, and full-bodied, Opolo's Mountain Zinfandel is not for the faint of heart. This is a massive Zin, with Raspberry Jam and Mocha aromatics, and a big rich structure.
