Opus One 2016 – Napa Valley

The nose is elegant, spicy and offers power, a beautiful finesse and complexity. It reveals notes of Boysen berry, cornflower and small notes of juicy/ripe cassis associated with fine touches of wild raspberry, black plum, violet as well as fine hints of nutmeg, sweet spices and subtle hint of vanilla. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, finesse as well as a fine richness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of cornflower associated with touches of strawberry, small blue fruits as well as hints of graphite, vanilla and nutmeg. Tannins are elegant. An almost saline persistence which gives suavity.
