Intense, structured and muscular.
Rich black and blue fruits, cedar, excellent oak integration, silky tannins and a tremendously long and complex finish. Wonderful showing of 2006.

Just starting to verge onto leather and parchment, herbaceously green, hints of cola and cassis in the background. Still had nice structure that is rounding out and starting to soften.

Nothing special even out of a mag. Tasted over four hours and never showed why worth the cost.

Sampled at a dinner with the charming Karen MacNeil seated directly across from me, legends Bill Harlan and Andrea Robinson at the table behind me. The Opus One 2006 sang—one long, melodic, satiny chord drenched in wild blueberries, steeped blackberries, and black raspberry. It unfurls slowly, releasing a daub of incense, then sandalwood, anise, dark chocolate shavings, and camphor. It is suave and sexy—a white tie and tails sort of wine combining power and freshness, finishing in dried herbs and graphite. #WineWritersSymposium2017

Just turned 10 and still tastes young. Napa classic no matter what the rating.

Toasty okay chocolate liquorice goodness, some dried dark fruits, just a hint of herbaceousness
