Opolo Zinfandel Paso Robles Summit Creek 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Named for the creek that runs through Opolo's west-side vineyard in the Sant Lucia Mountains, this Zinfandel offers intense fruit, including ripe black cherry, raspberry and a touch of spice. In the mouth, this well-balanced wine offers a delightful aftertaste that keeps on giving.

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

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.

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.
