Stellenbosch Cabernet Franc 2017


The first time I tasted this I wasn’t too impressed. I was expecting a ripe #cabernetfranc from California in my mind. I just tasted it blind among other #cabernetblends and it was one of the best. Deep ruby color with pronounced aromas of black fruit with savoury meaty (Bolognesa, Beef Bourginon) flavors. High fine grained tannins. #southafrica #stellenbosch — 8 months ago

Opus One

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1997

One of the greatest wines I have ever enjoyed! Tasted twice, most recently last fall, the 1997 Opus One showed incredible complexity and range of flavors. Still evolving, this wine will continue to age for 6 to 10 additional years.

Interested to see what you think. I haven't had that vintage for a decade tho.

I offered the '97 at a lunch of elite wine collectors yesterday, here in Hong Kong. It did not disappoint! The '97 has opened beautifully over the past 3 to 4 years.
