($150) Deep ruby-red. Aromas of dark berries, spice cake, beefsteak tomato and meat. Suave, smooth, lush and mouthfilling, with sweetly oaky flavors of dark berries, mocha, smoke and game. Generous, pliant wine, finishing with chewy but ripe tannins and lingering sweetness. A return to form after a few difficult vintages for this bottling.

DEEP ruby color character with a nose of blackberries and hints of vanilla, cocoa, and chocolate. Heavy blackberries and black cherries with suttle flavors of smoke and chocolate. The tannins are soft and well structured. Smooth and velvety long finish.

Having just returned from my eagerly awaited trip to Napa and the Opus One vineyard, I must express my disapointment. While this is a good quality wine, I find that is hardly worth the hype. Much less complex than I'd like to see from a wine of such pedigree and price tag. Perhaps it gets better with age.

But definitely not worth the money. Do yourself a favor and search out a small French or Australian producer for a less than half the price of this wine...

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.
