...elegant, lithe wine. Floral and savory aromatics lend freshness to this understated, classy Opus One. Sweet red berry fruit, dried herbs, blood orange and cinnamon lend notable complexity from start to finish.

92James Suckling

...very aromatic and pretty with plum, cherry and currant aromas, plus hints of chocolate...full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and a clean, fresh finish...subtly fruity, juicy red with a pretty texture.

90Stephen Tanzer

Rather cool aromas of plum syrup, cocoa powder, licorice and fresh herbs. Spicier and leaner than the 2012, with a strong impression of acidity and an herbal element giving a tart quality to the blackberry, graphite and leather flavors.

17Jancis Robinson

Lively and fresh but quite different! Really rather bordelais transparency. Sinewy. Fresh...


United States, California, Napa Valley

Napa Valley AVA is the most famous winemaking region in the United States and one of the most prestigious in the world. With nearly 43,000 acres of vineyards and more than 300 wineries, it is the heart of fine wine production in the United States. Winemaking started in Napa in 1838 when George C. Yount planted grapes and began producing wine commercially. Other winemaking pioneers followed in the late 19th century, including the founders of Charles Krug, Schramsberg, Inglenook and Beaulieu Vineyards. An infestation of phylloxera, an insect that attacks vine roots, and the onset of Prohibition nearly wiped out the nascent Napa wine industry in the early 20th century. But by the late 1950s and early 1960s Robert Mondavi and other visionaries were producing quality wines easily distinguishable from the mass-produced jug wines made in California’s Central Valley. Napa Valley’s AVA was established in 1983, and today there are 16 sub-appellations within the Napa Valley AVA. Many grapes grow well in Napa’s Mediterranean climate, but the region is best known for Cabernet Sauvignon. Chardonnay is also very successfully cultivated, and about 30% of the AVA’s acreage is planted to white grapes, with the majority of those grapes being Chardonnay,
