Opened on Friday and consumed over 3 days. Day 1 Opened and poured directly from bottle. Amazing aromas that you can smell standing 5 feet from the Riedel cabernet glass. Blackberries and violets on the nose. Velvety tannins Day 2: The wine really opened up and the aromas and taste got stronger/distinctive. Amazingly velvety wine that went down like a 10-year old Bordeaux Day 3: Started to fade. Only survived 2 days after opening. I did not use any preservation gas, etc.

Young and fruity, needs to be experienced in its context, a very Californian wine. Long finish for a young wine and a certain fullnes that acompanies the fruitiness, a very nice wine.

Balanced, young and civilized...Lots of fruit and huge aging potential. Opus never dissapoints!
