the jammy dark berry flavors are well balanced with the spicy oak finish. The blend gives it the perfect amount of earthiness without the cigar box\leather taste. I'm a fan.

Much better than the 2005 that I had 2 years ago. Much smoother with less of that "European terroir" bouquet and taste. Still not worth this pice tag....but a good wine nonetheless.

Won't make the same costly mistake again. There are so many other wines that I would select over this. It wasn't a bad wine, it just didn't live up to the hype or cost.

Wine Tasting NotesThe 2003 Opus One offers aromas of blackberry, plum, hazelnut, graphite, olive oil, cocoa and dried cherries. The wine presents a soft entry with rich, flannel-like tannins; nuances of dark chocolate, black licorice and herbs linger on the finish.

Opus One Napa Valley Good full ruby. Roasted black raspberry, blackberry, spicecake, licorice, minerals and nutty oak on the nose. There's lovely sweetness to the black fruit and licorice flavors.
