Opolo Vineyards Rhapsody Paso Robles Meritage Red Wine 2002 Wine Review (NW)





Tasting notes:

Fragrant nose of blackberry, licorice, and hints of coconut

Full bodied and plush on the palate

Nicely layered finish of raspberry, blackberry, and vanilla

Summary:

Here's an interesting blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. As a 2002, it's really drinking nicely with rich fruit and plush layers. Interesting, with a lot of air it also developed herbal characteristics.

I paid $17 on closeout, which was a considerable deal considering this wine typically goes for over $30. I'd put it with red meat or a rich pasta dish. And raise a glass!
