 Product Description

Aromas of rose petals, cassis and black cherry in the 2008 combine with notes of marzipan and sandalwood. A satin texture enrobes the wine’s smooth, round tannins, its bright acidity supporting a juicy and elegant mouthfeel. This precocious and remarkable wine offers a long finish, with traces of clove and dark chocolate.

95 Antonio Galloni - 

Mocha, espresso, rosemary, lavender, plums and licorice emerge from the 2008 Opus One. Tasted from magnum, the 2008 is beautifully expressive. The firm tannins need more time to soften, but there is a lot to like in the 2008. Today the 2008 is showing beautifully. In magnum, the 2008 can be enjoyed today or cellared up to another 20 years or so. If opened young, the 2008 needs a few hours of air to soften. The bright, floral, spiced finish suggests a long life ahead. Magnum. Drinking window: 2013 - 2033.

 

93 Stephen Tanzer - (cabernet sauvignon blended with 8% petit verdot, 4% merlot and 1% each malbec and cabernet franc):  Good red-ruby color.  Rather wild, nuanced nose combines blackcurrant, dusty brown spices, tobacco, mocha, leather and meat.  Juicy and energetic in the mouth, with enticing inner-mouth florality giving lift to the dark berry, licorice and bitter chocolate flavors.  Not a particularly dense or fruity style but boasts nicely integrated acidity and already displays a lot of personality.  Finishes with substantial but fine-grained tannins, a hint of licorice and excellent persistence.  Winemaker Michael Silacci noted that this wine features the highest percentage of petit verdot to date.  And he's convinced that co-fermenting it with the cabernet sauvignon diminished the natural rusticity of petit verdot.
