Overture by Opus One 750ml

Meritage Blend from Napa Valley

Description: Overture by Opus One 750ml. Beginning in 1993 and following in the tradition of great Bordeaux estates, Opus One created a fine second wine called Overture. Every acre of our estate vineyard is meticulously farmed with the attention to detail and signular focus required to produce Opus One. This scrutiny carries through the blending process and certain lots will not be included in the final Opus One blend. Yet, when theses lots are afoorded additional time in barrel along with added flexibility of blending across multiple vintages, the final wine achieves a remarkable elegance and complexity. Overture displays a vibrant garnet color with expressive aromas of fresh red fruit. Notes of bright cherry and red currant are underpinned by more earthy tones of ground cocoa, cedar and vanilla. Extended barrel aging gives the wine an elegant texture accentuated by round tannins and a soft mouthfeel. Overture is primarily aged in New French oak with small amounts of one and two year old French oak barrels. All five Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec, make up the final blend with Cabernet Sauvignon always being predominant.
