Food Pairings for Opus One Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley
First impressions, a bushel full of berries on the palate. Rich, intense, flavor shines through and doesn't lose out to alcohol or unpleasant aftertaste. Masterfully blended, great with hearty beef stews, Italian, or other rustic fare.
It's a good, easy-to-drink great Bordeaux substitute,, but I still taste the same vanilla coke as many other new world wines. It's a good wine, I would buy a Canon from the same vintage for a similar price instead though.
The best wine! My all-time favorite. :-)
What I'm waiting to try for New Years! It was amazing! Smooth blackberries, a little smoke. It hasn't lost any fruit in the 5 years of age and can go a bit longer. Went wonderfully with beef tenderloin.
I thought it was overrated......everyone made such a big deal over it originally when I began wine training but I was dissappointed.
