Opolo’s flagship wine, Mountain Zinfandel, is by far most recognized and beloved by wine club members. Consistent with the overall fruit forward palate, Winemakers Chris and James have expertly weaved juicy red fruit notes with rounded spicy layers and a complex finish with balanced tannins.
As Opolo has grown and refined its award-winning Zinfandel program throughout the years, they’ve also honed a passion for Cabernet Sauvignon and audacious Boudreaux blends. Evidenced by the evolution of their Reserve Rhapsody label, the decadent blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec offers a fantastic opportunity for Opolo consumers to experience its bold dark fruit notes now and lay down to age for prime enjoyment of its balanced, full tannins.
