The 2015 Opus One is rich, sensual and super-polished. That said, 2015 has really shut down since I tasted it last year, which is probably a very good sign for the future. All of the fruit intensity and ripeness of the vintage is evident, but the wine feels a bit more compact and less exuberant than it did at the outset. Sweet floral and spice notes add a gentler touch as the wine opens up just a bit with air. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2020)

Incredibly smooth and dense. Very concentrated and polished. Awesome to try this iconic wine. The finish is so long, incredible.

The 2015 Opus One Red Wine is a monumental wine that blends Cabernet Sauvignon (81%) with Cabernet Franc (7%), Merlot (6%), Petit Verdot (4%) and Malbec (2%). The nose is highly complex and downright intoxicating showing off creme de cassis, mocha, tar, and shades of Turkish coffee that all build in the glass. There is a seamless quality to the wine that really impresses. Soft and round across the mid-palate, the wine reveals Asian spices. The palate is silky and spumous as the wine shows off an exotic edge with Turkish coffee, black tea, anise and creme de cassis that all impress. The wine finishes strong with minerals and black fruits. Enjoy this beautiful wine over the next twenty years. Drink 2020-2040- 98

Just starting to open up and showing it’s potential. Gripping tannins and a combination of blue and dark red fruits.

A gift is a gift.. super grateful! Always a beautiful wine and we can all debate about the current px etc but if you strip that away, I still think Opus One makes a great wine. Sure we all have preferences and there is always better out there. That said, this is in a great spot. Balanced acidity, fruit and ripe tannins that are don’t get in the way, but keep you engaged. Love!

Half bottle. So expensive but such a fantastic expression of what a wine can hold.
