"Very ripe and noticeably hot it undeniably may be, but here again is a big, close-to-jammy Zin that does not bog down in syrupy softness and is surprisingly well-balanced for a wine of its style. It is decidedly varietal in focus with berryish fruit running its length, and the acidity that keeps it alive pushes slightly puckery tannins to the fore at the finish. While it will benefit from another twelve months in bottle, it will hold its own with big-flavored foods now. Reviewed: January 2019" (CG)

Winery Notes:
Opolo has a specific trade mark when it comes to Zinfandel and this wine is absolutely one for the books. The 2017 Summit Creek Zinfandel is big and fruit forward yet nuanced and elegant at the same time. Bold fruit flavors, velvety smooth tannins, and just the right amount of barrel age make it an enjoyable wine for any occasion.
