Opus One 2013 Wine Tasting
Categories: Wine & Liquor
Discovering the splendid aromas of blueberry, cassis and blackberries of the current release of Opus One 2013 vintage...a pleasurable wine tasting session with guest speaker, Yvonne, from the Opus One Winery.
A very dry and unseasonably warm winter gave the vines an early start to the 2013 growing season and set in motion what would become an extraordinary vintage for Opus One. Flowering occurred under near-perfect conditions which led to excellent fruit set throughout our Oakville estate vineyards and ensured a bountiful harvest – though smaller than the previous year.
Unveiling a creamy entry gives way to layers of complexity which unfold in the mid-palate with velvety tannins enrobing a center of concentrated black-fruit. Elegantly balanced, the acidity and core structure deliver a persistent finish with hints of dark chocolate.
Cabernet Sauvignon 79%, Cabernet Franc 7%, Merlot 6%, Petit Verdot 6%, and Malbec 2%
