Review: 2017 Opolo Mountain Zinfandel Paso Robles
This Paso-born wine is more zin than zin, a boldly fruited wine that pours on notes of black currants, ripe raisins, and a skin of milk chocolate that feels like a touch of Hershey’s syrup is slowly dripping into the glass. An iconic example of the wine, the bruisingly high alcohol product (15.9% abv) is unctuous and just a touch syrupy, but hey, that’s exactly what a lot of people are looking for when considering a zinfandel. Nuanced, no. Rich, indeed.
