Opus One Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 2006
The vintage of 2006 saw the lowest average maximum temperature in twenty-five growing seasons. A saturated black-purple, the 2006 Opus One shows aromas of fresh cut roses, licorice, dark chocolate, blackberry pie, smoked bacon and sassafras. Simultaneously silky and dense on the palate, this unfined wine offers flavors of cassis, espresso and zesty black cherry with a persistently smooth yet expansive finish.
A good cabernet but not a great one. For the price ($150 a bottle), there are far better cabernets out there.Very plain flavor profile with a somewhat complex nose. I recommend Hewitt or Stanton over Opus One.
Filled with layers of blackberries, raspberries, black and red currants with a touch of vanilla, cedar and some earthiness. Wonderful complexity of flavors and richness, smooth mouthfeel and balanced structure, nice finish of the fruit and berries. The tannins keeps the structure and stays in balance with the acidity but nothing overpowers the other. Can stand 7-12 more years of aging.
Great wine with rich cassis and plummy fruits. Balanced with nice cedar flavors, and an undercurrent of minerality and eucalyptus.
The wine is pleasant and ready to drink. It is full of black fruit, mellow yet present tannins, a light smoke character and a med+ finish.

External Reviews for Opus One Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley
Scents of red currant, red licorice, wild berry, sage and fresh earth fold together nicely in this ripe, intense, tightly wound young Cabernet. Well-focused, deep and complex, with dry, earthy tannins on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2010. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Deep red-ruby. Sappy nose combines currant, smoked meat, tobacco and exotic spices. Rich, sweet and tactile, with complex, tangy flavors of crystallized black currant, caraway seed and smoked meat. Unlike most Bordeaux blends from California, this shows little greenness or gratuitous oak and the finish builds impressively. A very suave wine that finishes with fine, spreading tannins.
Made in the Opus style, which is graceful and elegant, but with hidden depths of authority and power. The blackberry, cherry and oak flavors are pretty, but the wine is most notable for its harmony and grace. Tannins play only a supportive role, but they will let this wine age effortlessly for many years.
Deep ruby-red. Aromas of dark berries, spice cake, beefsteak tomato and meat. Suave, smooth, lush and mouthfilling, with sweetly oaky flavors of dark berries, mocha, smoke and game. Generous, pliant wine, finishing with chewy but ripe tannins and lingering sweetness. A return to form after a few difficult vintages for this bottling.
Starts with tons of rich new oak in the aroma, showing the most inviting notes of cedar, cigar box and pencil lead that segue to the remarkable fruit. The attack is powerful, with a punch of cassis spreading broadly and deeply across the palate. With its sturdy, clean tannins, this beautiful wine displays classic power, elegance and balance.
An 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.
A significant improvement over the superficial, deficient 2000 Opus One, the 2001 boasts a dark plum/ruby color as well as a clean (brett free), elegant, restrained nose of plums, black currants, and anise. Medium-bodied with dry, hard tannin and a short finish, it is a pleasant, Bordeaux-styled red to drink over the next decade.
