The 2012 Opus One wine is a classy, complex, suave and savory. Glorious purity of fruit here with blackcurrants, blueberries, dark chocolate, fresh herbs and forest floor. Hints of mint. Full body, seamless tannins and wonderful balance. Tight and compacted tannins with beautiful fruit and great length. Notes of hazelnut and chocolate. One of the best Opus One wine in years. This Cabernet Sauvignon wine is compacted and beautiful.
The exceptional style of Opus One resulted from the combination of their talent, their vision and the unique terroir of the Oakville AVA an Eden for Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, this highly sought-after wine is produced from four different parcels, two parcels making up the famous 40-hectare To-Kalon vineyard, along with the River and Ballestra Parcels surrounding the Opus One winery.
The iconic 2012 Proprietary Red Opus One wine is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot and 2% Malbec aged 18 months in French oak.
