2010 Opus One - Red Wine Napa Valley (Pre-arrival)
Opus One Description
Showing aromas of fresh blackberry, rose petals, and chocolate, this age-worthy wine offers flavors of dark fruit highlighted by well integrated acidity. The round velvety tannins enrobe a silky texture with a hint of minerality.
Wine Spectator: 92 Points
Offers both a rich, supple, seamless core of earthy dark berry and touches of rustic loam and dried leather scents, the latter of which give this a drying sensation on the palate. Ends with dried herb, olive and savory notes that Opus fans will love, others perhaps less so. A classic Opus. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2026. 26,000 cases made. –JL
Steven Tanzer: 95 Points
(the blend is based on 84% cabernet sauvignon): Good saturated medium ruby. Riper on the nose than the young 2011, offering scents of blackcurrant, minerals, graphite, licorice and leather. Wonderfully suave and silky in the mouth, with terrific concentration and aromatic lift to the savory dark berry, crushed stone and mineral flavors. Really stains the palate without leaving any impression of weight. Boasts great clarity and outstanding depth, not to mention a finesse of texture rare for California cabernet. "Maybe my best vintage yet," said winemaker Michael Silacci. A beauty.
