Almost black in color. Blackberry, graphite, and spice with a terrific nose that outshines the palate. Still tannic, dark cherries, minerals, Bordeaux like in that it is more elegant and not highly extracted and likely in the early part of its drinking phase. From a split. Decanted. Lengthy finish but will improve as the tannins soften over time.
ganska lätt& snyggt för att vara så mycket cab, doften har toner av stall läder och lakrits, smaken är ganska mjuk och härlig, gissade blint på mer merlot än cab i detta vin. väldigt bra vin! mycket gott!
The first Opus I ever tasted. Hype or pure quality? A bit of both I would say. A great wine, but questionable value (compared to bordeaux in the range). Still on the fruity side, will certainly develop for five more years or so - my guess.
