2001 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1011617 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark 2001 was a moderate summer, leading to a relatively early harvest. It was winemaker Michael Silacci's first vintage and he opted for a long, 32-day maceration. The colour remains very deep with little maturity. It's lush but leafy on the nose, with a lifted cedary tone and considerable elegance. It's graceful rather than powerful now, but still shows some tannic grip. Its sucrosity is balanced by some fresh acidity. Textured and very long. (SB) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Mature, sauvage, expressive scents of blackberry, truffle, leather, violet, game and spice cake, along with a whiff of Band-Aid. A fairly plush, alluring midweight with lovely breadth and grain and a distinctly wild, mature character to its savory dark berry, leather and meat flavors. Nice restrained sweetness and texture. Finishes with a broad dusting of substantial tannins and good length. A tad dry-edged but still quite good, although fans of more polite wines may want to give this a pass. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2020)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Heady, direct aroma is so intense and powerful! Not alcoholic, just strong. Dusty finish with a suggestion of tamarind and something sweet and Fisherman’s Friend-like. Great balance. Warm bricks. Brilliant. 18.5/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

K&L Notes

Opus One was founded as a joint venture between Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi, and in 1984 released its first vintage, the 1979. It has since become an international success and a landmark winery in Napa. Farming 169 acres of vineyards in Napa Valley, they produce a luxury Bordeaux-style blend.
