Opus One Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1994

This is an impressive effort from Opus One. The wine, a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot, and 1% Malbec, possesses a dark ruby/purple color, followed by a generous, complex nose of lead pencil, toasty oak, violets, and black currants. In the mouth, there is a beautiful texture, soft, generous, low acid, full-bodied richness, and a stunningly proportioned, rich, intense finish. The influence of 18 months in new French oak casks gives the wine a subtle oaky note in addition to giving it excellent delineation. Because of the wine's softness and generosity, it can be drunk now as well as over the next 18-20 years. Robert Parker

1994 opus one saved for my daughters birth year with friend karina born 12 hrs later and mom my dear friend Sybille. A tremendous wine of cherry fruit, vanilla oak minerals and layers of spice. Also a great vintage for daughters!!

1994 opus celebrating daughters birth year with her childhood friends. This is what great wine cellaring is for. Minerals clay black olive and soft cherry. Beautiful hues with plenty of time still to age. Maybe we'll save the other bottle for their 30th!!

A beautiful, lush, complex Opus 1994 with plenty of earth, tar, oak and finesse. Deep and dark, with room to improve 5-10 years.

Remnants of the allocations from my mom and sister who worked for Mondavi in the 80s and 90s. Lucky for me they don't drink!

Beautiful, complex, layered. Damn fine wine. Pretty much unimpeachable.

Sadly, this bottle of '94 had passed its prime, but there were hints of its former glory.
