Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Very dark aromas of black cherry, cassis, blueberry and licorice. Then rather plush, sweet and full for Opus One, conveying a chocolatey ripeness to its dark berry flavors. Finishes with smooth tannins that build without going dry. This wine was broad and smooth from the outset. Today it's a generous mouthful but a bit clunky compared to some more recent vintages. This was reportedly the first vintage to include a significant percentage of Petit Verdot, and that may explain the wine's emphasis on black and blue fruits. (14.5% alcohol) (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, July 2019)

My youngest son's 21st birthday was last night and this was his selection - not a fan from my past experience but this is pretty good - I bought at an auction awhile back and had forgotten I even had it but he went right to it - haha - so for a birthday wine it is fantastic Love you son and he and I are smiling together

Tasted through a chunk of "cult" Napa Cabs tonight. Tons of garbage, but this 09 Opus really stood out. Only balanced wine of the bunch.
