Shackman,

It's hard to generalize about drinking windows and food pairings without having had a wine, because so much depends on winemaking style. I've had straight Petite Verdot from Valdepusa in Spain and Casadei in Italy (among a couple of others), which are styled quite differently.

That said, Opolo is a Paso Robles producer, so I might surmise that the wine is quite plush and richly fruity. Drink earlier, and pair it with robust foods, like a fried beef steak with a red wine pan sauce.

That's my best guess (not having had this wine).
I have had one Petit Verdot from Clenedon Family that actually reminded me of Barbera. I also had one from Castoro Cellars and even though from Paso Robles it was pretty reserved. One thing I see people mention about Petit Verdot is drinking well now but can age 5-10 years. Not saying that applies to your bottle but it seems typical.
