Opus One Napa Valley Red 1993


SKU 873


Abundant rainfall in winter and spring provided favorable moisture to the vines. Reaching maturity at an ideal pace, the berries and crop size were smaller than average; a warm spell in September brought the grapes to an even ripeness. The wines show complex aromatics and great structure.

Wine SpectatorAromatically complex, with enticing floral, perfumed fruit and spice, cedar and cigar box scents. Delivers a rich, complex core of earthy currant, mocha, exotic spice and fresh leather flavors. Tannins are well-integrated, with a long, vibrant, pleasantly earthy aftertaste.--1993 California Cabernet retrospective.
