Starts with tons of rich new oak in the aroma, showing the most inviting notes of cedar, cigar box and pencil lead that segue to the remarkable fruit. The attack is powerful, with a punch of cassis spreading broadly and deeply across the palate. With its sturdy, clean tannins, this beautiful wine displays classic power, elegance and balance.

Deep ruby-red. Aromas of dark berries, spice cake, beefsteak tomato and meat. Suave, smooth, lush and mouthfilling, with sweetly oaky flavors of dark berries, mocha, smoke and game.

Suave, smooth, lush and mouthfilling, with sweetly oaky flavors of dark berries, mocha, smoke and game. Generous, pliant wine, finishing with chewy but ripe tannins and lingering sweetness. A return to form after a few difficult vintages for this bottling.

Performing better than it did eight years ago, the 2001 Opus One reveals a classic, French-like style with notes of cedar wood, melted licorice, black currants, roasted herbs and tobacco leaf. While not one of the stars of the vintage, it is a medium to full-bodied, outstanding effort that has reached full maturity. It should continue to drink well for another decade or more. - Robert Parker

Dark crimson with a pale rim. Full-on, very ripe nose. Already quite a ‘sweet’ impression. Very very full and sweet, black cherries and even a note of coconut. Big and bold. Seems more approachable than some of the older... Dark crimson with a pale rim. Full-on, very ripe nose. Already quite a ‘sweet’ impression. Very very full and sweet, black cherries and even a note of coconut. Big and bold. Seems more approachable than some of the older vintages. Very much in the California idiom. 17/20
