The word 'opaque' means "impenetrable to light" and refers to the dark, inky, impenetrable color of our family's proprietary blend. We were so impressed by the Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Malbec grapes from our estate vineyards in Paso Robles, that we reserved them for this special blend. After aging in French and American barrels for 15 months, our hand-crafted artisan blend reveals ripe flavors of raspberry and blackberry with notes of spice and vanilla. Enjoy the darkness!

Inky ruby. Pungent, oak-accented aromas of blackberry and cherry liqueur, along with a steadily building vanilla quality. Lush dark fruit flavors show good depth and supple texture and reveal a spicy nuance on the back end. The cherry note repeats on the gently tannic, oak-spiced finish, which lingers with strong tenacity.

This red blend of six varieties is zesty in style, starting with fresh boysenberry and lavender aromas. The floral aspects grow on the palate, where violet and lilac flavors meet with boysenberry sorbet.
