Drinking fairly well right now considering the era — 2 months ago
After a spirited tussle between myself and the Durand vs a dry and crumbly cork I was able to double decant this and segregate away the remnants of floating debris. I was immediately struck by the bouquet which was unmistakably borne from Cabernet Franc (and I believe this blend is less than 10%). It was a positive sign. The wine is completely intact and boasts ample fruit albeit waning acidity. Simple Concord grape, bruised black plum and sweet oak flavors are holding on 2 hours in. This has some time left, but not much. This is a testament to Opus One quality in the early days (I believe this was the 3rd or 4th vintage) and while I think the ‘87-‘97 era was their best, this is an profound example of an exemplary wine at age 37! — 4 months ago

From an era not known for its longevity, but you had held up well.
Big, but balanced. Peppery. — a day ago
Found this in the odd lots bin at Kadota's Liquor near my old high school in Hilo, Hawaii a few days ago. Freaking delicious! Earthy, cherries, but very high toned for a SB Pinot of this era. Wish I still had some of this in my cellar. Justin was killing it from Day 1. — a month ago
Mia moglie sarebbe duro per questo pinot noir da Willtmett. Le piace la bicchiere seconda piu dopo e’ aperto. Ma dice che non vale la pena di trenta dollari. Era meglio di bere il giorno prossimo. — 3 months ago
