2017 Opus One, Mondavi/Rothschild, Napa Valley
Dry | Red | Still
The 2017 Opus One is a charming, impressive wine from this benchmark Californian winery. On the nose it’s pretty Bodelais - in my initial note I wrote, “smells like Lafite”. On the palate you feel that Cali density, with notes of mulberry and cassis, and a hint of fresh mint. Lifted and spicy on the finish, this is an Opus that really delivers.
