2007 Opus One

SOLD OUT​







Providing ideal weather for both budbreak and veraison, the 2007 growing season was picture perfect until late August, when a unique combination of extremes subverted the prospect of a quick and early harvest. A heat spell, unseasonably cool temperatures, rain and the threat of frost posed an unusual challenge for Opus One’s harvesting crews. During the 21 days of crush, the crews worked 12 night harvests, delivering the first fruit on September 4th and the last on October 17th.

Reminiscent of the generous 2001 vintage in style and structure, the 2007 shows very high color intensity with aromas of cassis, nutmeg, raspberries, cola, fresh oats, dark chocolate and forest floor. Polished, supple and harmoniously precise, the 2007 fuses a seamless mid-palate with soft yet sinewy tannins. The wine will age effortlessly for decades.

The 2007 Opus One is composed of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec. During fermentation and maceration, component lots received an average of 20 days of skin contact prior to 19 months of barrel aging in new French oak.

Critical Acclaim:
"Two of the strongest wines ever made at Opus One, the 2007 has terrific black currant fruit, licorice, incense, and subtle smoke, an opulent, even voluptuous mouthfeel, dazzling purity and texture, and a skyscraper-like mouthfeel. This is a sensational Opus One, with sweet tannin and impressive precision and depth. It can be drunk now or cellared for 25+ years."

The Wine Advocate

"Tight and firm, with a chewy edge to the dried currant, graphite, blackberry and mineral notes. Full-bodied and intense, without being weighty, this is well-structured in a Bordeaux-like manner, ending with a complex, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2012 through 2022."

Wine Spectator

"Saturated deep ruby. Black fruits, licorice pastille, bitter chocolate and pungent oak on the nose, lifted by notes of red rose and fresh herbs. Comes across as less sweet today than the 2006 but every bit as penetrating and gripping, with similar inner-palate clarity and lift. Finishes very long, with mineral and floral elements giving it a light touch. Here the very refined tannins hit the palate even later than those of the 2006. Not yet as complex as the earlier vintage, however; this still needs to put on some weight in the middle. "But the 2006 was even leaner at the same stage," notes winemaker Silacci. My projected range may turn out to be conservative. 91-94"

When is the Grey goose Magnums coming for us hard Liquor peeps? :p
Aimee,

I could do this but the problem is I'm sure you would be able to get it for way cheaper at the store. Reason being is that I have to deal with shipping and CC fees. So you would just be better off getting it at Costco. I'll look into it and see if I can do case deals for a bonkers price. Beside doing Magnum bottles of Grey Goose in one night for AIMEE = NO NO!!!
