Opolo Zinfandel Paso Robles Summit Creek 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Summit Creek Zin is a medium bodied red wine featuring overt raspberry-like fruit notes framed with soft tannins and modest acidity. Its dark color and background of pepper and spice complement this Zinfandel. This approachable wine is ready to enjoy today, yet will likely improve with an additional year or two of cellaring.

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

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.

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.
