Notes

Exceptionally promising with a sense of constrained, controlled power that is a hallmark of 2013. A corset of fine grained tannins surround a deep and chiselled mid-palate profile that is more dark hedgerow, cherry and roasted beans than sweet cassis. On the finish fine dark chocolate, stones, minerals alongside a touch of sweet tobacco and liquorice. It is absolutely not a fruit bomb, and all the better for it. The final blend is 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot and 2% Malbec.

Notes
The 2013 is a powerhouse. Dense, heady and massively structured, the 2013 is impossibly young. Huge swaths of tannin wrap around a core of intense dark red fruit in this potent, brooding wine. Graphite, smoke, cedar and tobacco run through this virile, statuesque wine. The wine's sheer youthful intensity is truly remarkable. I wouldn't dream of touching a bottle before age ten, and even that may not be enough. The 2013 Opus One is shaping up to be an iconic wine.
