Wine Spectator ReviewRated 92Tightly wound, with firm tannins. The core of meaty currant, anise, cedar and spice tasted awkward, but all the ingredients are there for greatness. I expect this wine may take longer than most Opuses to reach its peak.Opus One vertical. Best from 2002 through 2010.(Feb 29, 2000)


Winemaker's Notes:

Good weather led to normal bud break and excellent growing conditions throughout the spring. Mid-summer brought dry, warm weather with some hot days, accelerating the growth cycle. A very early harvest produced powerful wines with sturdy tannins requiring extended bottle aging.
