From Napa Valley
|Description:||"Tight and firm, with a chewy edge to the dried currant, graphite, blackberry and mineral notes. Full-bodied and intense, without being weighty, this is well-structured in a Bordeaux-like manner, ending with a complex, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2012 through 2022." (ws). "Two of the strongest wines ever made at Opus One, the 2007 has terrific black currant fruit, licorice, incense, and subtle smoke, an opulent, even voluptuous mouthfeel, dazzling purity and texture, and a skyscraper-like mouthfeel. This is a sensational Opus One, with sweet tannin and impressive precision and depth. It can be drunk now or cellared for 25+ years. " (wa). "($189) Deep red-ruby. Very sexy, perfumed aromas of ripe black raspberry, roast coffee and flowers; there's a wildness here that I find compelling. Quite fresh and juicy in the mouth, but with a slightly exotic character to the dark berry, black cherry, smoky oak and bitter chocolate flavors. Not a fat style of 2007 but perfumed and energetic. Most impressive today on the firm, long finish, where substantial ripe tannins reach the front teeth. Built for a long evolution in bottle. I'd love to compare this against the 2006 in ten years." (iwc). "5. 2007 Opus One, "Red Wine," Napa Valley ($195) – Medium-dark ruby; attractive, herbal, slightly stemmy, cassis and black cherry fruit aroma showing some elegance and complexity; full body; rich, intense, currant and dark cherry fruit flavors with notes of spice and dark chocolate; well balanced and structured for bottle aging; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Very highly recommended. 14.7% alcohol; 17,500 cases; a blend of 79% Cs, 8% Merlot, 6% Cf, 6% Petit Verdot (pv), and 1% Malbec; released October 2010. (Group Score: 16.4, 0/2/0; My Score: 17 [93/100], fifth place)" (cgv)|
