Opolo Summit Creek Zinfandel Paso Robles 2013

Member Review by boris8:

3.5 glasses. Intense fruit (cranberries, prunes, plums, blackberries), raisins. Some pepper. Tannic and slightly sweet, those 2 not well harmonized but wild-tasting. Cola notes. Needs more earth & spice notes & a touch more acidity.

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

My current affinity is for wine that punches you directly in the mouth. From first sip this one is all in your face. Heavy fruit with enough balance to linger for just enough time at which point you realize you just got punched in the face. Then it's wow can I have another.

This is a nice, fresh red zinfandel. It's actually the first red zin I have had and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is fruity, with a light body and just a small amount of dryness.

I am new to Opolo but find it to be cost/quality positive. It is a great wine to drink with food and at 12-20 a bottle, wonderful.

Summit Creek is a great all purpose wine. Its big and bold and most of all affordable. The Opolo Zin reserve is the giant big brother to this wine as well as the Mountain Zin.

Wine Tasting NotesNamed for the creek that runs through our west-side vineyard in the Santa Lucia Mountains, this Zinfandel offers intense fruit including ripe cherry, plum and spice. In the mouth, this well balanced wine offers a delightful aftertaste and long finish.
