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.

Montagna-Mare is a blend of Barbera and Sangiovese grapes from carefully selected vineyards. This "Italianesque" wine has a very long, spicy finish that is fruit driven yet integrated with broad strokes of oak aging.

If you are one of those that believe bigger is better, read on. Appropriated named both for it's beautiful bouquet of fruit, as well as where the grapes are grown, this full-bodied Zinfandel has plenty of black cherry, plum and spice and is framed by soft tannins and balanced acidity. Zinfandel isn't known as America's most decadent red for nothing.
Named for the creek that runs through our west-side vineyard in the Santa Lucia Mountains, this Zinfandel offers forward fruit characteristics, including ripe black cherry, raspberry and a touch of spice. On the palate, this well-balanced wine offers a delightful aftertaste that keeps on giving.
