1990 Opus One Proprietary Blend - 750ml

In Stock Unavailable
1990 Opus One Proprietary Blend This is a terrific Opus with a broader deeper palate and less of the overly-sculptured structured feel that past examples have revealed. The 1990 exhibits a dark ruby/purple color and a spicy rich sweet nose of cassis vanillin lead pencil herbs and minerals. Medium to full-bodied with low acidity sweet tannin and wonderful layers of ripe pure rich fruit the wine is in complete harmony without being excessively acidified or brutally tannic. This is a gorgeous Opus for drinking over the next 16-18 years. My instincts suggest it is the most promising Opus One made to date. RP Dramatic with its ripe rich plush core of exotic currant anise cedar vanilla and berry notes that are enormously complex on the finish. Delicious.--Opus One vertical. Drink now through 2010. 20500 cases made. WS
