Has anyone tried this new brand Opolo?

I'm a fan on Pinot Noir but not usually at $25 a bottle. If it was good, I'd consider it with company. I know it sounds cheesy, but if I'm going to spend that much, I really enjoy Kendall Jackson.

I know, I know.

  1. I have only had their zins in the past year, which I really like. I can't remember their pinot. Just remember it is a westside of Paso Robles winery, and it does get hot out there, so I am not sure it is the best place to grow pinot. If you like central coast wines, like I do, I might suggest trying a Talley pinot. It is much cooler down in the Edna Valley and I really enjoy their pinots, and they are at about the same price point.

    1. Opolo is not a 'new brand', it's been around for at least a few years. I'm a member of their wine club but I have not tried their pinot noir. I have a shipment due soon but I suspect they are holding off on shipping during the summer heat.
