To all somms and wine geeks. Don't stick your nose up at opus. First experience with this estate and vintage. Underrated and very much over achieving.

Love how these wine age, super smooth nice overripe red fruits now, little leather and somewhat a little mint/menthol/eucalyptus undertone ... Long finish ... Delicious

Blinded this hung with 2004 Palmer and 67 Lafite as the unexpected stand-out wine amongst classic old world producers. 2000 Opus in 2015. Scores listed are bias or consumed prematurely.

Old world all the way, could taste the dirt but enough fruit was coming through to make this wine a nice one.

I find that the so called "off" vintages in Napa to be some of the most satisfying, such as '98 and '03.
