This is one of the finest Opus Ones to date offering a dark ruby/purple color as well as a striking intense bouquet of sweet licorice intermixed with blackberries cassis plums and saddle leather. This seamless full-bodied wine is more velvety-textured opulent and succulent than past vintages. The mid-palate is expansive and chewy. The long finish is filled with glycerin ripe fruit and sweet tannin. Drink this impressive user-friendly yet richly concentrated effort over the next 15 years.

Pungent black raspberry, leather, game, chocolate, espresso, pepper and fresh herbs. Juicy, bright and very concentrated, with crunchy currant, tobacco and dark chocolate flavors supported and amplified by a firm spine of acidity. Long on personality. Finishes with dusty tannins and excellent length.
