2012 Opus One, Mondavi/Rothschild, Napa Valley
With enticing aromatics of ripe blackberry, graphite and an earthy nose, there is a restrained exoticism here typical of the finest Oakville Cabernets. The palate is plush with incredible quality of sweet tannin and great balance, making it very approachable, like a Pauillac on steroids. With black cherry, iodine, camphor and real vitality, this is a wine of many layers with a very bright future.
