1986 Opus One Napa Valley Proprietary Red (Slighly Oxidized Capsule, High-Mid Shoulder)

SKU #1072757 94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Bordeaux-like in structure, this is an impressive showing. Firm tannins wrap around the currant, black cherry, anise, spice and cedar notes. Long, persistent finish. Inner quote mark (2/2000)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep brick colour. Appealingly evolved nose of leather, game, tobacco, espresso, stewed prunes, bacon and tea. The palate still provides a good amount of elegant fruit that builds in the mouth. Light to medium level of silky tannins remain with medium to high acidity to provide freshness. Long finish. Fully mature. Inner quote mark (7/2009)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Early budbreak, even longer growing season than 1985. To-Kalon fruit still. Patrick Leon of Mouton in charge. Cabernet Sauvignon 87%, Cabernet Franc 9%, Merlot 4%. Skin contact 21 days, 18 months in new French oak. Slightly watery rim. Good depth of crimson with muddy orange rim. Still quite youthful. Some oak! Gentle cassis. Good texture. Interesting combination of Californian-style fruit and Bordeaux winemaking. Tannins still evident. Inner quote mark (9/2005)
