Opus One 2019

Red wine | Oakville AVA, Napa Valley, California

The undisputed star of American wine!
Opus One 2019 offers intense aromas of black plum, blueberry, blackcurrant, and dried rose petals, accented by mineral nuances. On the palate, a lovely freshness and very fine-grained tannins support a creamy, terribly catchy substance, with flavors of black fruits, fresh herbs, espresso, and cocoa, with a delicate bitterness in the very long finish. One of the greatest wines on the planet, created by two legends!

    James Suckling
    The purity of fruit is really something else here, with currants and fresh flowers, such as violets and roses. Flower stems as well. Fantastic length and structure to the wine, with tightness and focus. Wonderful fruit. Graceful. A blend of 78% cabernet sauvignon, 8% merlot, 7% petit verdot, 6% cabernet franc and 1% malbec. Try after 2028.

    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    Winemaker Michael Silacci commented that usually the blends are finished in January or February after the vintage. This year, with the 2019s, he was still tweaking the blend, but he did mention that this is "pretty close to the final blend." Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Opus One leaps from the glass with notes of Black Forest cake, Morello cherries, mulberries and fresh blackcurrants plus hints of licorice, wilted roses, Sichuan pepper and iron ore. Full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with juicy black, blue and red fruits, framed by velvety tannins and background freshness, finishing on a compelling earthy/mineral note. Tasted as a barrel sample, this is a truly magnificent Opus One in the making! -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

    Wine Spectator
    Elegantly styled, despite some serious heft, this offers a mix of alluring mulberry, morello cherry and cassis notes bearing a gently mulled edge, while flashes of apple wood, sweet bay leaf and red tea flicker along the edges. Very refined in feel, with seamless structure extending the finish so the fruit can be washed. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2038. - James Molesworth
