1998 Opus One Overture Red Wine

Wine Description

(From NV Vintage) Less structured than Opus One and more approachable in its youth, Overture shows generous fruit and a soft, supple mid-palate.

Winemaker's Notes

Already slowed by El Niño’s winter flooding, the growing season of 1998 extended into late October, promoting a very long ripening period for Opus One’s grapes. Supple and lush, the 1998 Opus One shows an opaque purple color and intense aromas of blackberries, vanilla, and roasted espresso. The wine offers superb balance, a resilient middle body and a seamless texture.
