While well known as a producer of zinfandels, including the flagship Mountain Zinfandel, Opolo has also made an intensive commitment to cabernet sauvignon and other Bordeaux varietals in recent years.

Cabernet sauvignon has long been a part of our portfolio and is now coming on strong for us as recognition for Paso Cabs continues to grow, said co-owner David Nichols.

We have several new vineyards coming on line that will continue to take our Cabernet program to the next level, co-owner Rick Quinn added.

The winning wine

Opolos 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from select vineyards located in three distinct Paso Robles AVAs, enabling winemakers James Schreiner and Chris Rougeot to create a wine with “natural depth and complexity.”

The blend includes fruit from the Opolos Quinn West estate vineyard in the Willow Creek district, a coveted limestone-rich terroir in the coastal mountains to the west. A selection also comes from a site in the El Pomar district, which benefits from cooling sea breezes flowing inland through the Templeton Gap. Finally, a small fruit contribution from the Opolos estate vineyard in the warmer layers of the Estrella district in a touch of ripe, fruity dimension.

Opolo Vineyards is a family-owned winery founded in 1999 by Quinn and his partner Dave Nichols. Opolos wines come from wineries with approximately 400 acres of vines on both the west and east sides of the Paso Robles AVA. These sites occupy a variety of growing conditions, enabling Opolo to produce a wide variety of wines of dimension and complexity.

We invite everyone to join us for an afternoon of experiencing the 2019 Cabernet and other wines paired with our many food offerings, said Quinn.
