| Michael Silacci continues to push the envelope of quality, which is remarkable for many reasons, the most important of which is the sheer scale of Opus One, which has no equal in Napa Valley at this level. One of the more recent developments at Opus One is an increased use of co-fermentations. As good as these bottled wines are, I am often just as impressed by the lots and blends I taste at Opus One that aren’t bottled, as those wines say just as much about what the ambitions are at this reference point estate.-From Brilliance in Napa Valley: The 2016 & 2015 Cabernets (Jan 2018) by Antonio Galloni

Wine Spectator 92 points – From a very cool growing season, this shows a subtle fruit profile of dried currant and damson plum flavors, with the savory edge taking the lead, along with dried sage, tobacco and cedar notes. Exhibits a sense of grain, but this remains refined in feel overall, delivering persistent perfume through the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. — Non-blind Opus One vertical (September 2019). Drink now through 2032. 25,000 cases made..February/2020Vinous 94 points – The 2011 Opus One comes across as quite powerful and intense. Raspberry jam, rose petals, savory herbs and mint, all come together beautifully in the glass. The tannins are going to need a few years to soften, but the 2011 continues to develop very nicely in bottle. This is a very strong showing, especially within the context of the year. The 2011 is dark and even a bit rough round the edges, particularly when tasted alongside the surrounding vintages. The lithe, mid-weight, savory style is at times more Old World than New, yet all the elements are in the right place..Antonio Galloni, December/2014 |
