2017 Opus One, Mondavi/Rothschild, Napa Valley

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.

TASTING NOTES

A remarkable wine for the year, the 2017 Opus One is a dense, full-throttle beauty. Plush fruit and soft, silky contours give the 2017 its racy personality. Exotic, beautifully perfumed and impeccable in its balance, Opus One is one of the most complete wines of the vintage. In 2017, Opus One has a distinctly red-toned fruit profile that distinguishes it from the surrounding vintages.
