Opus One Napa Valley Red 2010
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
"It was tae kwon do with mother nature in 2010," says Silacci. "We had everything thrown at us-heat, rain. A challenging year, but we found out we could pick earlier than we thought." The wine is focused, with a cassis and cherry paste core, supported by chalky minerality at first, changing to iron through the finish. Lots of savory flecks hang in the end, with the fruit easily keeping pace. Still quite young. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.-Non-blind Opus One vertical (September 2019). Best from 2022 through 2038. 26,000 cases made.
