I loved the Opus One 1997 when we got a case on release. Tasted it again in 2006, and it didn't taste nearly as good as it it around 2000-2002. Not sure if that was just the particular bottle, or if Opus doesn't age as well as some wines.

A rich, decidedly earthy style of Opus, showing currant, anise, black cherry, mineral, leather and sage flavors that are focused and complex. Drink now through 2010.

A voluptuous garnet, the 2007 Opus One offers concentrated aromas of blueberry, rose petals, white truffle, licorice and nutmeg. Flavors of cassis, black olives, raspberry and dark chocolate culminate in a long and luscious finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Abundant sunlight in the previous vintages produced high fertility in the wine buds and a large crop, which was thinned to the lowest per-acre yield in a decade. Harvest was early and very compact, comprising just 11 days. The wines combine vigor with finesse.
