A blend of 77.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1.5% Malbec, the Opus One 2016 Proprietary Red Wine was recently bottled in July and August 2018. Very deep purple-black, the nose reveals profound notions of chocolate-covered cherries, cr癡me de cassis, blueberry compote and licorice with touches of tobacco, cedar chest, Sichuan pepper, eucalyptus and violets. Full-bodied, super concentrated and packed with black and blue fruits, the palate is built like a brick house with firm, ripe, finely grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and perfumed. This a very decadent expression of Opus One with a provocatively effortless harmoniousness that is truly difficult to resist. 2016 is the vintage winemakers can't remember because it was so uneventful. We had plenty of rain in the early part of the year, commented Opus One winemaker Michael Silacci, followed by an early budbreak. We were able to pick fairly regularly with an even flow in the cellar. The more 2016s I taste, the harder it is to fault this decadent, rich, blue and black-fruited vintage.
