Opus One 2014 – Napa Valley

Opus One 2014 – Napa Valley

The nose is elegant, aromatic and offers a beautiful complexity and intensity. It reveals notes of wild blackberry, cassis and small notes of cherry associated with touches of wild strawberry, violet as well as hints of Sichuan pepper, fresh herbs and a fine hint of tea. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful finesse of the grain, tension, suavity as well as juiciness as well as deepness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/ripe cassis, fleshy/ripe Boysen berry and small notes of cherry associated with fine touches of violet, cornflower as well as fine hints of tonka bean, chocolate, caramelization and bourbon vanilla. Tannins are elegant and fine. Good length.
