About This Wine:
This delightful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec was inspired by our love for Paso Robles Malbec. Here at Opolo, we tamed a big beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon with lots of rich and creamy Malbec to make an absolutely elegant wine that is sure to deliver now and for years to come. Soft tannins and a beautiful bouquet of fruit, complemented by aging in both French and American oak barrels, have created a wine with immediate appeal.

Production Notes:

The 2012 vintage began as normal with cold winter months followed by a warm spring. The summer months were hot with just enough cool spikes to allow for extended hang time thus producing grapes of utmost maturity, outstanding quality, and rich concentrated flavors.

Winemaker Notes:

The grapes were handpicked early in the morning and gently de-stemmed into stainless steel fermentation vessels. After fifteen to twenty days of fermentation, the must was gently pressed and aged in oak for 18 months.

Serve Best With:

Pair with prime rib or braised short ribs.
