Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
93 DE / 16 JR
Stylish aromas, with vanilla oak and the fragrant trappings of class. Glossy, opulent and silky with lovely cassis fruit richness, albeit in a full-bodied, powerful frame with robust tannins and a firm spine of acidity. Drinking Window 2018 - 2027. - Anthony Rose, Decanter
Then multi-vintage blend that until recently has been available only at the winery in Napa Valley, now being commercialised to beat the drum a bit more for Opus. Deep ruby with a pale rim. Very sweet, ripe, penetrating nose that screams Napa Valley. An edge of cocoa. Light, lively and open with just a little bit of rusty nail on the end. Perfectly friendly but not top drawer. - Jancis Robinson
In keeping with the tradition of many great Bordeaux estates, Opus One produces a fine second wine called Overture. Since 1993, Overture has been crafted as a part of our relentless pursuit of quality for Opus One. Every acre of our estate vineyard is farmed with the attention to detail and singular focus required to produce Opus One. As part of the highly selective blending process, some lots, despite showcasing the amazing Oakville terroir of our estate, are not chosen for the final blend of Opus One. These lots are afforded additional time in barrel, in combination with blending across multiple vintages, to achieve a final non vintage wine of remarkable elegance and complexity that captures the essence of our estate vineyard over time. This is Overture.
Aged in French oak, Overture is composed of the same five varietals that define Opus One: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet France, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Winery Notes
