Fidelitas Optu Red 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

OPTU is the ultimate expression of exquisite balance of complexity and craft. By collaborating with some of the most<br/>prestigious growers in Columbia Valley, this combination of varietals has provided the optimum experience that embraces<br/>the bold black fruit, cassis and oak flavors - Latin translation - the "best".

90 Points, Wine Enthusiast: "The Optu blend is based on Cabernet Sauvignon (55%) but includes a fair amount of Merlot (36%) and a bit of Cab Franc and Malbec. It speaks to the blending prowess of winemaker Charlie Hoppes that this is one of the stars of a portfolio that also features excellent single-vineyard Merlots and Cabernets, unblended. The Optu brings structure and texture to its black currant and black cherry fruit, along with veins of earth and lead pencil running through slightly grainy tannins." - P.G., 11.01.08
