Four and a half glasses
External Reviews for Opus One
This bold, rich and assertive red is firm and concentrated, displaying a mix of dried currant, blackberry, wild berry and spice flavors, ending with loamy earth and melted black licorice notes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Best from 2014 through 2025.
Eleganter und lagerfähiger Spitzenwein. Aromen von schwarzen Oliven und Mineralien unterliegen traditionellen Noten dunkler Schokolade und Espresso. In der Mitte reife Blaubeeren, Cassis und Lakritz; geschmeidiger Abgang mit leichter Tannine.
Full medium ruby. Wild, flamboyantly expressive aromas of black raspberry, crystallized blackberry, smoke, leather, licorice, bitter chocolate and cedar, lifted by violet and spices. Smooth, mouthfilling and decidedly dry, with a lightly dusty character to its flavors of dark fruits, minerals and game. The broad, very long finish features building tannins. Quite different in style from the higher-pitched 2008, which was tighter and more floral at the same stage of its evolution.
