2001 Opus One Overture
(USA, California, Napa Valley)
Had the Opus little brother. Definitely not Opus but I think Overture is a better value for 45 bucks than Opus is for 150. The color of this wine was constant with Opus but a little thinner. The nose was a little more like a Bordeaux with light fruits. This wine did come off a little industrial though. It needed to open up a little and I would not open and pour. After about 30 minutes it opened up a little and was a constant cab. Little hot on the tannins. The wine was a little metallic and not real strong on the fruit. Had some veggies and some light tobacco. This wine is good and much better than an everyday wine but I would be hesitant to have too many bottles at 45 bucks. Try it out for the experience but don’t load up on it.
