Aged in the utter darkness of our French oak barrels, and emerging into the light with deep, dark, and rich flavors, Opaque redefines what it means to drink red wines.
Bold and rich, Opaque manages to capture everything we love about big red wines. Opaque’s flagship wine is the Darkness red blend, which combines Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Petit Verdot. Other standalone bottlings include unique varietals such as Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Zinfandel.
The head-trained vines at Quarry Heights, our estate vineyard in Paso Robles, grow on calcareous shale soils that impart a distinct minerality to the wine. The resulting Opaque wines are heady and unapologetic in their undaunting flavor profiles.
