Expert Reviews

85 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2004

($139) Deep red-ruby. Somewhat herbaceous aromas of leather and smoke. Lush and silky in the middle palate, with strong game and smoke notes but little sign of primary fruit. Then finishes with an offputtingly dry edge. A disappointing vintage for this wine.

The taste of this vintage is superb and can go with any occassion from brunch on a Sunday to a nightly dinner at your most exclusive restaurant. If ever you have wanted an experience of what Napa produces you must try this wine.Don't cheat yourself out of this experience.

The things that makes this a great wine are (1) the label and (2) the price. It is the prestiege of getting the "Opus" name. I have had a number of 2000 Bordeaux's priced in the $40 that are as good. If this were a $50 bottle I would give it a 4.5. You are good but not a century wine in my book. Sorry Gents.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
