1993 Opus One Red Wine Napa Valley

Wine Description

Deep garnet-brick colour. Fragrant aromas of dried cranberries, prunes, cinnamon and cumin giving way to subtler earthy notes of leather and tar. A lot of discernable fruit remains on the palate framed by crisp acidity and a medium level of grainy tannins. Very long, layered finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Abundant rainfall in winter and spring provided favorable moisture to the vines. Reaching maturity at an ideal pace, the berries and crop size were smaller than average; a warm spell in September brought the grapes to an even maturity. The wines show complex aromatics and supple tannins.

    (From 1995 Vintage) "A shade more elegant and refined than the '94, yet sharing the delicious range of flavors, with bright black cherry, plum and floral notes. Turns smooth and polished.--Opus One vertical. Best from 2003 through 2014. 30,000 cases made."
