Uus vein - Opus One 2012

Uus vein - Opus One 2012

Opus One on Napas, Californias paiknev kultusveinimõis, mis loodi kahe veinimaailma ikooni Baron Philippe Rothschildi ning Robert Mondavi ühisprojektina 1979. aastal. Vein on valmistatud 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 7% Cabernet Franc ja 2% Malbec viinamarjadest. Vein laagerub 18 kuud 100% uutest Prantsuse tammevaatides ning enne müügile tulekut rahuneb 18 kuud veel pudelis.

"Glorious purity of fruit here with blackcurrants, blueberries, dark chocolate, fresh herbs and forest floor. Hints of mint. Full body, seamless tannins and wonderful balance. Tight and compacted tannins with beautiful fruit and great length. Hazelnut and chocolate. Goes on for minutes. One of the best Opus in years. Compacted and beautiful. Hard not to drink now but better in 2018." James Suckling 97 points

"Rich, powerful and seductive, the 2012 Opus One blossoms in the glass with superb textural richness and volume. Dark red and black fruit, smoke, cedar, new leather and tobacco all meld together as the 2012 shows off its personality. Fine, silky tannins support the huge, creamy finish. The 2012 has just been bottled, but it is superb. I expect the 2012 will offer a long and broad drinking window of pure pleasure." Antonio Galloni 96 points

Opus One on ka üks nendest mitte-Bordeaux tippveinidest, mida nüüdseks suuresti ainult läbi Bordeaux veinibörsi (Place de Bordeaux) müüakse.
