Opolo Zinfandel Paso Robles Mountain Zinfandel 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

<strong>Tasting Notes</strong> Appropriately named both for it bountiful bouquet of fruit, as well as where the grapes are grown, this full bodied Zinfandel has plenty of ripe black cherry, raspberry and spice and is framed by soft tannins and balanced acidity. Zinfandel isnt known as Americas most decadent red for nothing.<br/><br/><strong>Cuisine Notes</strong> This wine pairs well with pork roast, BBQ ribs & chicken & tri-tip. It also is nice with blue veined cheeses and chocolate.<br/><br/>

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

I've bought perhaps 8 cases of the 2007, and drunk half of them with friends... dynamite zin, very fruity, not tannic, very unlike Ridge or Seghesio, really a fun elegant wine. I assume it will lose fruitness as it ages. RS is under 1% and etoh is 16.6%, but the alcohol is pleasant and enhances the fruit.

Color is almost black and rich. great legs. Has the aroma of grapes on the vine in the sunshine. The texture is thick and velvety in the mouth. The wine is very fruit forward. I would serve it as a desert wine with your selection of assertive cheeses.

Amazed that with the 16.5% Alcohol it is such an easy drinking wine.

Wine Tasting NotesIf you are one of those that believe bigger is better, read on. Appropriately named both for it bountiful bouquet of fruit, as well as where the grapes are grown, this full bodied Zinfandel has plenty of ripe black cherry, raspberry and spice and is framed by soft tannins and balanced acidity. Zinfandel isn't known as America's most decadent red for nothing. This wine pairs with pork roast, BBQ ribs & chicken & tri-tip. It also is nice with blue veined cheeses and chocolate.
