About The Wine:

 

The 2014 vintage was precocious – marked by the earliest bud break in our history. Timely
rainfall and a continuation of mild and dry conditions throughout the year allowed the
grapevines to support the slightly higher-than-expected yields. Following a near-perfect growing
season, harvest commenced on September 5th just as the grapes reflected an ideal balance
between freshness and concentration. After an early rainstorm, there was a brief pause; but the
succinct harvest was completed on October 7th.

 

The 2014 Opus One exudes subtle aromas of fragrant florals, fresh garden herbs and forest floor
that give way to a concentrated blend of red cherry, blackberry and black currant. After a silky
entry, dark fruit flavors emerge with hints of baking spice and black olive. Fine-grained tannins
offer a velvety texture and complex structure that builds to a long, vibrantly fresh finish with a
touch of mocha. Enjoyable now, the wine will delight for years to come.

 

The wine was aged for 18 months in 100% new oak

  • "Mesmerizing aromas of flowers, bark, currants and blackberries. So perfumed. You just want to smell it. Exquisite tension and finesse with an almost Burgundian texture, yet it’s Napa in its soul with ripe fruit, stones, spices and Chinese tea leaf flavors. Savory and delicious. Drinkable but better in 2020."
