Tasting Note:

Plum, cherry and red currant notes frame the nose joined by stony aromas, a touch of rosemary, black pepper, mint and sage. Aromatically there's great clarity to this, a theme that continues on the palate, with crisp, detailed flavours of black plum, mulberry, rose, mocha and ferrous spice. Overall, the 2019 displays surprising levity and deftness with length and focussed intensity on the finish. This is not an opaque, heavy Napa - indeed the new oak is barely noticeable - but a modern traditional rendition, built upon twin tenets of restraint and freshness. A long savoury finish signals the complexity that will come with more time in bottle. 2019 marks the first vintage where the team at Opus have managed to use 100% native yeasts for fermentation. Bottled at 13.5% abv.
