Opus One 2011 – Napa Valley

Opus One 2011 – Napa Valley

(71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec) The nose is powerful and harmonious. It reveals notes of juicy fruits, flowers (violet, a touch of iris) and black fruits (blueberry, blackberry, touches of fig…) associated with a few animal notes, slight notes of underbrush and touches of oak, spices, gray pepper and black tea. The mouth is fat, balanced, nicely done, elegant, mineral (quite marked) and offers a creamy texture. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of juicy fruit (blackberry, plum) associated with slight floral notes, touches of cherry, slight notes of licorice as well as small woody notes. Tannins are fine and supple. Good length.
