Flot magnumudgave af den ikoniske Opus One.

Opus One er grundlagt af et sandt dreamteam, når det kommer til californisk vin. Philipe Rothschild og Robert Mondavi er hver især geniale vinmagere, og i denne vin deler de deres tanker og idéer. Tilsammen har de skabt en vin, der er gået hen og er blevet et vaskeægte ikon indenfor amerikansk vin.

Opus One laver kun en enkelt vin om året, og den er en sammensætning af druer fra fire forskellige marker i Napa Valley-området. Det er vine af skyhøj kvalitet, som er sammensat af de bedst tænkelige Cabernet Sauvignon-druer af vinmageren Michael Silacci.

Smagsmæssigt bevæger de sig i en koncentreret retning og giver en lang og dyb smag, der intensiveres i vinens finish. Det udtryk søger Silacci han hvert eneste år med stor respekt for den enkelte årgangs særpræg og egenskaber.

I 2017-årgangen består det endelige blend af 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4.5% Merlot og 1% Malbec.

Opus One had picked 91% of their fruit before the fires started in 2017, and only two lots were eliminated from consideration. The 2017 Opus One, bottled in July 2019, is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4.5% Merlot and 1% Malbec. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it slowly grows on the nose, revealing compelling notes of baked black cherries, mulberries, black raspberries, warm cassis and blackberry pie with nuances of spice cake, yeast extract, tapenade, licorice and dusty soil with a waft of wild sage. Medium-bodied, the palate has a lively skip in its step, featuring bags of juicy raspberry and cassis-laced fruit and a refreshing line, supported by ripe, plush tannins, finishing long and graceful.

Decanter - 96

A fist of late summer cherries, raspberry and bilberry fruits set out their stall, all with the juicy character that confirms, even in a hot vintage like 2017, Opus can deliver balance and sculpted elegance. Beautiful grip, creamy texture with a strikingly powerful tannic frame. As the wine stays in the glass the floral aromatics begin to bloom up. A brilliant Opus. 20 days maceration - around half what it would have been a decade ago. 54% native yeast, as part of their native yeast project. 5% Merlot and 1% Malbec complete the blend. Harvest spread out over September 5 to October 8, just before the fires, by which time they had less than 10% of the fruit still out on the vines. 3.7pH.

James Suckling - 95

Lots of currant and floral notes on the nose. Hints of mint and spice. Medium-to full-bodied, round and savory with creamy, juicy tannins. Hints of citrus underneath. Bright, fresh and delicious. Drink or hold.
