Opus One Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 2000
Despite an early bud break, vintage 2000 saw a long, cool growing season, with a harvest extending into late October. Soft and plush in texture, the 2000 Opus One offers aromas of sandalwood, leather, caramel, and a hint of anise. Showing flavors of blackberry and herbs, the wine is harmonious with sweet tannins and a long, intense finish.
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. :-)
I served this wine with Christmas dinner and had rave reviews from everyone at the table. It was a gift from my father, I had no idea what we were drinking until after the fact. So my love of this wine was pure, not price induced as the recent study reported.
I thought it was overrated......everyone made such a big deal over it originally when I began wine training but I was dissappointed.
