Description

Opus One 1996 17.5 Drink 2005-2015

Continued heat spells resulted in small, relatively early crop of very ripe berries..

19 months in new French oak

13.9%

Slightly dull crimson. Especially aromatic. Very slightly soapy nose. Floral. Aggressively lively. Very sweet start to the palate, with lots of tannin. Very dry finish. Slightly gawky nose. Not nearly as balanced as the 1995.
