1995 Opus One Napa Valley Proprietary Red
Bottle in nice condition. Good fill level.
Opus One is the legendary joint venture between Napa Valley impresario Robert Mondavi and Bordeaux's Baron Philippe de Rothschild forged in 1970 and launched in 1980. This remarkable cabernet-based blend also includes small amounts of cabernet franc, merlot and malbec. The 1995 vintage benefitted from a long, cool growing season that extended harvest into mid-October. Spicy, dense and wonderfully balanced, this wine is built for the long term. According to Wine Spectator: "Earthy, funky aromas and flavors are intense and concentrated, so if you like those dense earth, leather, mineral and tobacco flavors that come across like Old World Bordeaux.--1995 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now. 30,000 cases made." (Web only, 2005)
