Opus One--Vintage 1994
1 double-magnum per lot
Opus One--Vintage 1994 Napa Valley "This is an impressive effort from Opus One. The wine, a blend of 95 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2 Cabernet Franc, 2 Merlot, and 1 Malbec, possesses a dark ruby/purple color, followed by a generous, complex nose of lead pencil, toasty oak, violets, and black currents. In the mouth, there is beautiful texture, soft, generous, low acid, full-bodied richness, and a stunningly proportioned, rich, intense finish. The influence of 18 months in a new French oak casks gives the wine a subtle oaky note in addition to giving it excellent delineation. Because of the wine's softness and generosity, it can be drunk now as well as over the next 18-20 years." Robert Parker Wine Advocate, #114 (Dec 1997) 1 double-magnum per lot
