Opus One Napa Valley Red Wine 1.5L 2011
95 Points Decanter:
As the most Bordelais vintage of the new millenium, the 2011 Opus One is one that will appeal to tasters with classical sensibilities. A complex bouquet of cassis, blackberry, rich soil, tobacco leaf and cedar, with a nice framing of new oak, is followed on the palate by a savoury, well-balanced and authoritative wine with good concentration and length. 2011 was a very challenging vintage, but the team at Opus One did an excellent job indeed.
92 Points James Suckling:
This is very aromatic and pretty with plum, cherry and currant aromas, plus hints of chocolate. It's full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and a clean, fresh finish. This is a subtly fruity, juicy red with a pretty texture. Drink or hold. For early drinking. 71% cabernet sauvignon, 11% merlot, 9% petit verdot, 8% cabernet franc and 1% malbec.
