Opus One 1995 Robert Mondavi & Baron Philippe De Rothschild 75cl / 13%
A bottle of 1995 Opus One, a red wine from Napa Valley, California, produced and bottled by Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild.
'Another prolonged growing season with the harvest from late Sep to mid Oct. Cabernet Sauvignon 86%, Cabernet Franc 7%, Merlot 5%, Malbec 2%. Skin contact 39 days, 18 months in new French oak. A certain herbaceousness on the nose, though no shortage of ripeness underneath. Tea-leaf aromas. Mineral kick. Round and ready and plump and forward, though tannins insist at the finish. Good acidity. (More than the 1994.) Very good balance. 18/20'
