Community Tasting Notes 93

  • winebot Likes this wine:

    December 24, 2014 - As smooth as a wine can get. Outstanding with a standing rib roast.

  • Yack Man Likes this wine: (91 points)

    November 23, 2014 - Subtle but fragrant nose, medium dark fruit, earth and mushroom notes with nicely integrated tannins. Probably the best Opus I have tasted. 91.4 Points and overpriced!

    November 6, 2014 - Dark garnet. Expressive nose with a distinctive taste of beef stock (“Maggi”) putting the fruit and other components a bit too much into the background. On the palate medium to full bodied with still some young tannins to dissolve. Overall good balance for a Napa CabSav. Tannins will integrate for sure, I am more worried about the aromas...

    October 31, 2014 - Cabernet Sauvignon at C's: Only had a small sip of what was left in the bottle. Luckily not much sediment here. Dark, sweet fruit, very generous and for me typically Californian. Medium finish. 92+?

    September 28, 2014 - Decanted for 1hr. No detailed notes to provide. This was another excellent experience with Opus One. Ripe fruit, silky texture, rich yet balanced. Drinking very well now, although I'm sure this will continue to gain even more complexity.
