07 was underrated for this offering. So approachable and pairs well with many dishes around Christmas time. From a mag.

A little tight but showing good structure and promising longevity. Needs time. 2010 vintage

2011 opus one. Wish there was a better picture. This was a disappointment to me after all the other wines. Everyone I spoke with agreed, a pure nose of a fresh cut green bell pepper shoved in a glass. Hmmm. Need to give this some time to equalize.

The 2013 Opus One is an absolute stunning release, and is certainly one of most impressive young wines I have ever tasted from this estate. This shows a darker, more forward profile from this warm vintage, and is clearly one to contemplate, as there are so many complexities and working parts to this compelling wine. This instantly impresses as it opens to intense aromatics of crème de cassis, black cherry, blackberry compote and black plum woven together with mocha, sandalwood. The mouthfeel is voluptuous and beautifully concenrated with deep and penetrating flavors of black cherry, créme de cassis, blackberry cobbler, anise, sage and anise, which all resonate beautifully across the palate. This is already extreamly appealing, but try to resist this hedonistic wine for at least another few years, as there is undoubtedly a long future ahead. Drink 2019-2035-99
