The 2010 Opus One has become incredibly elegant and polished over the last year, while retaining its power, structure and intensity. Explosive throughout, the 2010 is every bit as compelling as it has always been. Hints of rose petal, violets, lavender and mint add nuance as the wine turns a bit brighter and more floral over time...pretty hard to resist, even today. This is yet another terrific showing from the 2010. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Earth leather cedar and baked red and black fruits. Very complex and beautifully stuctured. Tannins very fine and integrated. For a fairly young wine it was really nicely far along. This was a suprising standout among some really strong wines.

A fitting end to owning a winery as 2010 was the year we officially took over the winery. Tight, a touch of Brett but very pretty. Red fruit earthy spice and intrigue. Not a 100 pointer, but certainly a rocking wine.

Silky, perfumed cab blend. Absolutely delicious. Seamless and Bordeaux like but without a hard edge to be found. Tons of red cherry, cola, fruitcake and graphite. It could not be more round and well balanced. Haven't had a bottle of opus I really liked in some time but this is different for sure.

Silky and smooth, with rich notes of dark chocolate and cherry. I've tried both the 2010 and 2011 vintages and prefer the warmer 2010 vintage to the cooler weather in 2011.

Dark fruit, plum and black cassis. Silky soft tannins for being a young 2010. Very approachable. A great example!
