2014, 2015 and 2016 blend of fruit rejected for Opus One in the spring blending session. Fruit from their four vineyards. QR code on the back label gives more information. Bottled 14 August 2018. Quantity 10–15% of the volume of Opus One. Deep crimson. Very pale narrow rim. Sweet, almost dark-chocolate nose. Not quite fresh enough for many a European palate, I would have thought, but certainly well made and certainly an opulent expression of Napa Cab. Little top note of balsam adds interest. A smoothness of texture and a skein of light minerality. Respectably long and ready to drink. Hardly any tannin in evidence. Jancis Robinson (8/2020)
