Opus One Red Wine Napa Valley

Wine Description

(From 1999 Vintage) Opus One is known for it's exquisite texture, and the 1999 vintage is no exception. The wine shows aromas of cassis, cloves and roasted almonds against a creamy texture of soft tannins and round, rich fruit. Offering flavors of plum, cherry and black pepper, the 1999 will be charming in it's youth and expressive at maturity.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) The 2007 has terrific black currant fruit, licorice, incense, and subtle smoke, an opulent, even voluptuous mouthfeel, dazzling purity and texture, and a skyscraper-like mouthfeel. This is a sensational Opus One, with sweet tannin and impressive precision and depth.

    Amazing!!!! Celebrated with this when my wife and I found out our twins on the way are... A boy and a girl! We have two wonderful girls already and found out our twins on the way will be a boy and a girl. Ok.. My wife didn't drink any of course, I drank it all to celebrate!

    A soft, creamy entry gives way to a concentrated mid-palate that expands in the mouth and lingers on the finish. Elements of cassis, toffee and cocoa round out the rich flavors of the wine. Intense fruit, bright acid and sturdy tannins promise resilience and longevity.

    官能的なガーネット、ブルーベリー、バラの花びら、白いトリュフ、甘草とナツメグの香りなどがとても印象的なスタイルで、シルクを思わせるアタックと柔軟でありながらしっかりとした質感と果実味、酸とのバランスも見事で、また、カシス、ブラックオリーブ、木イチゴとダークチョコレートを思わせる長く官能的な余韻を呈する。

    (From 1998 Vintage) A very pleasant wine to be sure, this one wins the day with its ripe cherry and proper cassis aromas buttressed by pushy oak. A supple rounded entry leads to medium-depth, balanced, slightly tannin-toughened flavors, and, once again, oak accents fill out the small gaps in its young fruit. If rising above the vintage in both texture and continuity, and praiseworthy for those entirely significant accomplishments, it is nonetheless quite expensive for what it offers.
