The 2014 Opus One is super-classy, elegant and polished, with mid-weight structure and tons of pure class. This is one of the more restrained recent vintages of Opus One and yet all the elements are impeccably balanced. The flavors are bright, precise and beautifully delineated. Even so, the 2014 is not an easy or immediate Opus One.

Blended of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec, the Opus One 2014 Proprietary Red Wine sports an inky purple color and nose of crushed black and red currants, black cherries and mulberries with touches of underbrush, sautéed herbs and pencil shavings plus a waft of spice box. Medium-bodied, finely crafted and with an energetic line lifting the red and black fruits, it has a bold frame of grainy tannins and a very long, earth and spice-layered finish.
