Wine Review: This midnight blue colored Petite Sirah from Opolo is a terrific winter wine. It opens with a mild blueberry bouquet with a hint of boysenberry. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and very smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry with notes of minerality and oak. I also detected faint hints of black plum mixed in as well. The finish is dry and its building big tannins are sticky and linger for quite a while. I would pair this impressive Petite Sirah with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Big and bold is the only way to describe this wine. Rich flavors of black plum and boysenberry are complemented by black pepper and mint. Deep bodied, the richly rounded palette leads to an intensely long and satisfying finish. This wine is a boxer’s glove wrapped in rich velvet.
