I believe the vintage 2013 is the greatest Opus ever. Terrific aromas of crushed black currants, blueberries, and flowers with hints of sweet tobacco. Roses continue to exude opulence and class. Full body, superb balance of ultra-fine tannins and vibrant acidity. Complex aftertaste of black fruits and citrus fruit. Extremely persistent. So approachable now with 2-3 hours in a decanter...or and you can keep forever.

ABOUT THIS WINE - DANIEL'S NOTE
I believe the vintage 2013 is the greatest Opus ever. Very approachable now after 2-3 hours in a decanter or and you can keep forever.
Iconic founders, iconic wine - this is how we can see Opus One. A joint venture between Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild and Californian Robert Mondavi, the dream was to create a Bordeaux Grand Cru Classé wine in Napa Valley, California. And their dream came true!
