1985 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1076673 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark It exhibits a healthy dark ruby color with no signs of age. The nose has not budged much from when it was first bottled. The delicate yet attractive fragrance of vanilla, herbs, cassis, and spices is followed by a sculptured, fruity, medium to full-bodied wine with crisp acidity, moderate tannin, and good depth. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/1995)


Outer quote mark A juicy, expressive wine, the 1985 Opus One is showing nicely today. Cinnamon, cloves, leather and dark cherries meld together in an Opus One that is soft, racy and appealing. Hints of brett appear from time to time, but there is almost enough fruit to balance out that imperfection. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2013)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Tasted from magnum. A bit stalky, with raw, edgy tannins, but it holds together and there's enough cherry and currant fruit, along with herb and anise shadings, to hold your interest. (JL, Web Only-2005) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

One of Napa Valley’s best vintages in a decade, 1985 saw an early budbreak, a long, moderate growing season, and dry, warm weather during harvest. Wines are rich, supple, and very aromatic, showing great balance and length. Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon 90%, Cabernet Franc 4% and Merlot 6%.
