Excellent 2013 Opus One Vintage
This offering reveals splendid notes of currant and blackberries complimented with rose flower, anise, and gingerbread nuances. Creamy attack evolving into lovely depth. Coated, smooth tannins cover the palate with fresh black fruit flavours. The 2013 Opus One is elegant, balanced, sharp and structured. The finish is persistent with hints of dark chocolate.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 Opus One, a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec, is a beauty. Velvety textured, without a had edge to be found, notes of crème de cassis, blueberry, subtle wood and floral notes gently rise from the wine's dense purple color. Beautifully full-bodied and extraordinarily elegant and pure, this is certainly one of their great achievements over the last 37 years. The wine has an exquisite finish and can be drunk now or cellared for 25-30 years.
