Opus One Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1997 (1500ml)

$1089

...One of the most opulent, racy wines in this vertical, the 1997 literally explodes from the glass. Juicy dark red cherries, menthol, tobacco and licorice all make an appearance as the 1997 opens up over time. Readers holding the 1997 are in for a thrill. Even though the growing season was defined by hot weather, a short maturation cycle and a large crop, the wine turned out beautifully... Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

One of the greatest wines I have ever enjoyed! Tasted twice, most recently last fall, the 1997 Opus One showed incredible complexity and range of flavors. Still evolving, this wine will continue to age for 6 to 10 additional years. (October 2012, Kings Mountain, CA) #opusone #napavalley #wine #redwine #bestwinecatagory #californiawines #cabernetblends

Needs time to open up but quite delightful once it does - nice, supple tannins and slightly rustic
