A gift is a gift.. super grateful! Always a beautiful wine and we can all debate about the current px etc but if you strip that away, I still think Opus One makes a great wine. Sure we all have preferences and there is always better out there. That said, this is in a great spot. Balanced acidity, fruit and ripe tannins that are don’t get in the way, but keep you engaged.

Fragrant mountain fruit
A few hours of airtime, as per my usual.
Some tropical notes at first sip - Shea, coconut, this opens the floor up for debate on what comes next, is it the dark chocolate cherry, or cacao nibs with red stone fruits? Hard to say, except the finish is even, tannin acid balance is quite nice.
Overall this is an amazing Cab Franc. — 21 days ago

Tasted blind. Reddish scarlet center with reddish tawny rims. Spicy fruit nose. Dark cherries, rhubarb, Asian spice, dark soil and gravel. Comes across as masculine and powerful. The silky nose is followed by a young fruit and chewy mouth experience. Lots of dirt and cherries. We debate which region it’s from. Gevrey? MSD? Someone says it’s Vosne but I think it’s 95 Ponsot Griotte. This wine needs more time to soften its edges. — 7 months ago
