Description

One of the highlights among the more recent releases, the 2010 Opus One is flat-out gorgeous. Dark cherries, plums, graphite, cassis and pencil shavings are all woven together in a fabric of notable class and elegance. The 2010 stands out for its exceptional minerality, tension and pure power. This is a picture perfect rendering of this great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon vintage.

Antonio Galloni – Aug-2013

Aromas of blackberry, rose petals, chocolate and espresso accentuate fruity and earthy nuances. Round velvety tannins enrobe a silky texture with a touch of minerality. The flavours of dark fruit are enhanced by the well-integrated acidity. The acidity and tannin structure promise a very long life ahead.
