September 13, 2014 - Tasted at BBR event alongside a 1986 Margaux Margaux. Tasted first and was a massive hit of lush fruit, complexity and depth after the previous burgundy/Pinot flights. So much so that it took a while to get into the Margaux afterwards which was a completely different kind of complexity. This was still too young and not comparable to the Margaux really. It was however, once past the youth, a truly beautiful wine and one that could make you cry such was the depth, richness and balance. I can imagine buying this wine and seeing how it develops - the Margaux however, which was my favourite is a wine I don't think I'll have the pleasure of experiencing again in my lifetime (which fills me with sadness.....) I am trying to hold onto the memory of both.

September 2, 2014 - powerhouse of a wine, classic cassis and mushroom aroma and taste, so so young, it can live for another 20 + years easily. Let them rest if you have these, go for something more approachable like Dominus.1 person found this helpful Comment

August 7, 2014 - Dark purple color. Very classy nose of dark berries, cassis, sweet spices, some eucalyptus and some smoke. On the palate there is beautiful density and weight without being heavy. Full-bodied, dense with medium acidity and medium-high tannin that is good quality but still a little present. Great length. A beautiful Opus One, still very young but with great balance. Is it worth the really high price of admission.... probably not but it's very beautiful... give it another 3-5 years.

July 13, 2014 - Drank it together with Thomas at Piment in Hamburg together with Clos Apalta 2005. The winner was clearly the Cal Cab. The nose is amazing, eukalyptus, mint. Strong powerful, a straightforwarded beast, very complex, mocha, vanilla, too young, lasting for at least 5 more years

May 19, 2014 - Nice Wine but nothing special. Medium bodied, balanced but I have had much better wines at half the price. Very disappointing for $150. This is the 3rd bottle of Opus I have had and none of them blew me away. Dominus is a better wine $4$.
Just found out they are getting $300 for a bottle of this today.
