I bought 2 cases in 91 and I am down to 3 bottles make that 2 now. Better with age but long corks are begining to break. I have some 83's left and they are aging better. This is still one of my fav wines in the world.

An earthy style that's in sync with the rain-plagued vintage. Still, there's complexity within the earthy currant, cedar and spice notes, though it turns dry on the finish.--Opus One vertical. Drink now through 2004. 17,500 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 1989 Opus One Proprietary Red Wine 375ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Normal weather patterns prevailed during the long, cool growing season which produced typical crop levels. Unseasonably cool weather – which included late September and October rains – delayed the harvest, producing lower sugars and lean, vigorous wines.
