Overture Opus One Red Napa Valley Release 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

The blackberry and cassis characters of Cabernet Sauvignon melds seamlessly with the black cherry, red current, violet and deep plum of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Barrel aging weaves in the nuances of vanilla and toasty oak spices while enhancing the wine's elegant texture and sensual mouthfeel. By blending several vintages, we broaden the spectrum of nuances and enhance the soft, supple mid-palate, which are the hallmarks of Overture.

  Opus One is a winery in Oakville, CA founded as a joint “NapaMedoc” venture between legendary winemakers Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Robert Mondavi in 1979, although the name didn’t become official until 1982. The first few vintages, beginning in 1979, instantly created a luxury brand fetching prices upwards of $50, then considered the height of indulgence. They were produced by Mouton Rothschild winemaker Lucien Sionneau and Robert Mondavi’s son, Timothy. Opus One boosted the then fledgling Napa industry, adding a certain air of pedigree to the region.    The wines are now under the direction of Michael Silacci, produced as a Meritage blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec. This “cult” wine is now in constant demand the world over, from American steak houses to private Japanese cellars.  Read less
