Opus One 1995
The 1995 vintage was ideal in almost every respect. A long, cool growing season yielded a mature and balanced crop. Harvest began in late September and finished in mid-October, a period of dry, warm days and cool nights. Spicy and rich, the wines offer exquisite balance and a persistently long finish.
Medium brick color. Intense nose of dried blackberries and cherries laced with complex aromas of coffee grounds, tobacco leaf, cumin and soy. Nice concentration of mature berry and spice fruit balanced by medium to firm, slightly chewy tannins and medium to high acidity. A more structured style of Opus. Very long finish.
Delicious aromas of chocolate, sweet tobacco, and currants. Full bodied and very soft, with velvety tannins and plenty of fruit. Interesting notes of iodine, lavender, iron, and plum. This is textbook stuff, holding on beautifully. Find the wine
