Wine Spectator Review
Firm and structured, with spicy currant, herb, dill and berry, picking up a cedary lead pencil edge. Finishes with a firm, rich core of flavors and tight tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Despite an early bud break, vintage 2000 saw a long, cool growing season, with a harvest extending into late October. Soft and plush in texture, the 2000 Opus One offers aromas of sandalwood, leather, caramel, and a hint of anise. Showing flavors of blackberry and herbs, the wine is harmonious with sweet tannins and a long, intense finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon 84%, Merlot 6%, Cabernet Franc 5%, Malbec 3% and Petit Verdot 2%
