Opus One Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 1999
After moderate summer temperatures in 1999, a glorious Indian summer put the final touches of maturity on a fine harvest. The 1999 Opus One offers aromas of cassis, cloves, and roasted almonds against a creamy texture of soft tannins and round, rich fruit. Long-lived and concentrated, the wine shows flavors of plum, cherry and black pepper against a silky finish.
Opus One is the reason I became addicted to wine!! (Plus it made me a bit of a wine snob, but let's keep that to ourselves)
By far one of the best red wines I've ever had.
Blood red wine....Opus one was built by the Rothschilds. One of the 13 families of the Illuminati. Originally Opus I was scheduled to open around the Summer Solstice but the date was shifted to Wednesday, Oct. 30, 1991 which is the day before Halloween. Since the opening day, the Rothschilds have had events scheduled around Satanic high days. Those who are familiar with the occult know that these events are covers for Satanic rituals which are held secretly. The logo of Opus One is the two-headed Janus or the spirit who divides, the symbol being an important part of Illuminati mind control. There are numerous satanic icons within the structure. Don't take my word for it. Look it up yourself. In connection with Bohemian Grove. These people are creeps.
The first time I had this was during a business dinner - the second, a friends house celebrating my marriage. It is really unbelievable. Smooth, rich and just something you want to continue to hold in your mouth without swallowing. A definite treat for a special occasion.
Since the 70's when Opus started it's been up and down with its quality. They make often in excess of 25000 cases with less and less going into quality and more towards quantity. Although once a good brand, it is merely a shadow of what it once was...
External Reviews for Opus One Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley
Wine Spectator ReviewRated 93An exquisite, complex, stylish wine, wearing a cloak of earthy, leathery tannins around flavors of mineral, currant, earth and blackberry. Gains intensity and shows its depth and concentration on the finish, which is long and detailed. Best from 2004 through 2012.
While it is a big, rich effort, the 1999 Opus One exhibits a distinct earthiness as well as a sweaty saddle-like characteristic. It builds nicely on the attack and mid-palate, but finishes short, displaying hints of herbs, chocolate, and black curran... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

...Sappy nose combines currant, smoked meat, tobacco and exotic spices.
