Opus One Red Wine Napa Valley

Wine Description

(From 1980 Vintage) Mature, with spicy black cherry and dried cherry accented by anise, herb and cedary notes, finishing complex, with firm tannins.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1984 Vintage) The absence of late winter rains produced warm soils and an early bud break. Although Oakville saw cool mornings as well as warm afternoons, the growing season was the shortest on record. Ideal temperatures at harvest yielded clean, well-balanced fruit and concentrated wines with good aging potential.

    (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."
