The 2005 Opus One, a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec, has a ruby/purple color and a beautiful, sweet nose of créme de cassis and spring flowers. Complex and medium to full-bodied, with silky tannin and superb purity and balance, this is exactly what Opus One was meant to be when it was first proposed. Of course, it is a popular wine to criticize, but the quality has never been better, and certainly 2005 is a beauty. It is reaching full maturity at ten years, but I think there is still another 10-15+ years of upside potential in this wine. It is full-bodied, opulent. RP95

Tasting note


The 2005 Opus One is a testament to the pursuit of uncompromising quality. This wine is a voluptuous garnet, offering concentrated aromas of blueberry, red roses, white truffle, licorice, and nutmeg. A silky entry combines with a moderately soft mid-palate to express a supple texture and a fine balance of fruit and acidity. Flavors of cassis, black olives, raspberry, and dark chocolate culminate in a long and luscious finish. The wine is matured in new French oak barrels for 18 months, adding a layer of complexity and depth. This wine is best enjoyed after a decanting time of 2 hours.
