Opus One 2009 Robert Mondavi & Baron Philippe De Rothschild 75cl / 14.5%
A bottle of 2009 Opus One, a red wine from Napa Valley, California, produced and bottled by Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild.
'2009 was a cooler vintage, and that’s reflected in the complex bass notes of black olive and tobacco which inflect this Opus One’s bouquet of dark fruit, chocolate and licorice; supple and polished on the palate, this wine has more of a savoury edge to its tannic profile than riper years such as 2007. Cabernet Sauvignon only makes up 81% of the blend here, complemented by fully 9% Cabernet Franc, a variety that plays an increasing role at Opus.
