Opus One 2012 – Napa Valley

Opus One 2012 – Napa Valley

The nose is fine, elegant, beautifully fruity and harmonious. It reveals notes of ripe black fruit, blackberry and slight notes of violet associated with fine notes of cassis, graphite, leather and oak. The palate is powerful, mineral, suave, ample, beautifully harmonious, elegant, fat and offers a nice velvety matter. Good structure. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blueberry, black cherry, blackberry and raspberry combined with small notes of chocolate, red cherry, small notes of spices, very fine oaky notes and a fine note of coffee on the aftertaste. Tannins are fine, elegant but currently a bit young. Good length and persistence. You can already enjoy this wine but I advice to wait 3/4years (2018/2019).
