    August 26, 2016 - Opened up after 90-minute decant. The wine may be in a confused phase, as the flavors seemed a bit muted and the tannin a bit harsh compared with other bottles of Opus I've had. Nevertheless a good amount of air revealed lovely balanced fruit and medium body.

    June 30, 2016 - Everything FLORIDAWINEDRKR said. My first Opus One. Was very skeptical. This wine sang with only an hour double-decant. Enjoyed with filet. Can't imagine improvement from here, but it'll hold.

    May 15, 2016 - Rich, heavy wine with a multiple levels of complexity. Notes of dried fruits, firm tannin structure leaving a very pleasant aftertaste. A great wine to share with friends.
