|Description:||About this wine:. Beginning in 1993 and following in the tradition of great Bordeaux estates, Opus One created a fine second wine called Overture. Every acre of the estate vineyard is farmed with the same attention to detail and singular 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 these lots are afforded additional time in barrel along with the 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. Tasting Notes:. The blackberry and cassis characters of Cabernet Sauvignon melds seamlessly with the black cherry, red current, violet and deep plum of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Barrel aging weaves in the nuances of vanilla and toasty oak spices while enhancing the wine's elegant texture and sensual mouthfeel. By blending several vintages, we broaden the spectrum of nuances and enhance the soft, supple mid-palate, which are the hallmarks of Overture. Varietals: A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec.|
