Opus One 2015, RP 97, JS 98, WS 93
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot
Region: Napa Valley, United States
The Opus has the elegance of Bordeaux and the boldness of Napa Valley. Sensuously and elegantly intoxicating, notes of floral violets, perfume, lavender and oak and a sprinkling of hibiscus. On the palate heavy dark fruits, blackberry, chocolate, cocoa, oak, cherry and raspberry. Strong tannins keep these flavors and aromas in balance.
This one has a long and lengthy finish with wonderful consistency.
