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. (October 2012, Kings Mountain, CA) #opusone #napavalley #wine #redwine #bestwinecatagory #californiawines #cabernetblends

Needs time to open up but quite delightful once it does - nice, supple tannins and slightly rustic

Enjoyed this 20 year old beauty to celebrate our anniversary. I've never experienced a wine that changed so much over the course of an evening. At first the nose was dirty - in a good way - but the palate was tight. After a short while, the wine opened up to reveal a nose of leather, tobacco, baked dark fruits, earth, and much more. The palate was rich and complex. At one point, it did become a bit of a CA fruit bomb, but it was a damn enjoyable fruit bomb. It was a great experience.
