Buy it. Period. An exceptional wine that gets better with age. See the 1987 currently selling at $295. For those very special occasions (an anniversary) should yours come in the fall in front of a fireplace at the Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons. For those of us that can truly appreciate what wine is all about stash a bottle of this and be patient...wait for that perfect moment in time and pull this out. Enjoy!

January 2010 was a little long to cellar this wine. It was a little rough coming out of the bottle but 15 - 20 minutes of decanting smoothed it right out and then it held it's own. Deep fruit with some nice leather and a little spice, which held all the way through the finish. I'll bet it was fabuous 5 years ago.

Medium brick colour. Intense nose of dried blackberries and cherries laced with complex aromas of coffee grounds, tobacco leaf, cumin and soy. Nice concentration of mature berry and spice fruit balanced by medium to firm, slightly chewy tannins and medium to high acidity. A more structured style of Opus. Very long finish. Drink now to 2020. Tasted April 2009.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 1995 vintage was ideal in almost every respect. A long, cool growing season yielded a mature and balanced crop. Harvest began in late September and finished in mid-October, a period of dry, warm days and cool nights. Spicy and rich, the wines offer exquisite balance and a persistently long finish.
