Heiner Lobenberg über:
Opus One 2015


Lobenberg: Intensives Bouquet von süßem Lakritz und Unmengen reifer schwarzer Beeren, im Gaumen samtig, opulent und voller Stoff. Weißer Pfeffer, Schwarztee. Cremige Textur und reife Fruchtaromen. Ein Hauch von Gerbstoff. Raffiniert, finessereich, überaus balanciert und langlebig. 97-100/100


Suckling über: Opus One

-- Suckling: Purity and brilliance on the nose with so much currant and flower character. Roses, currant bush and fresh leaves, too. Brightness is the word that comes to mind. Full-bodied and broad-shouldered. Juicy and so gorgeous now. Balance is so wonderful here. All about harmonious fruit and tannin balance. I like it slightly better than the excellent 2014. 81% cabernet sauvignon, 4% petit verdot, 7% cabernet franc, 6% merlot and 2% malbec. Drink or hold. 98/100


Galloni über: Opus One

-- Galloni: The 2015 Opus One is a terrific example of the year. Super-ripe and flamboyant in style, with tons of fruit pushed forward, the 2015 has a lot to offer. Today, the primary intensity of the fruit and some of the new oak need time to subside, but there is a lot to look forward to. A rush of super-ripe red cherry, plum, mocha, espresso and wild flowers build into the huge, creamy finish. 97/100


International Wine Report über: Opus One

-- International Wine Report: The 2015 Opus One is a monumental showing from this iconic Napa Valley Estate. Composed of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot and 2% Malbec this instantly begins to impress with its seductive aromas of fresh ripe blackberries and dark currants, woven together with exotic spices and florals along side nuances of graphite, anise and loamy soil that all take shape in the glass. On the palate this is just as stunning, as it displays a gorgeous full body, with remarkable overall structure, balance and concentration, as flavors of pure ripe dark fruits and exotic spices continue to build leading up the the long, beautifully polished finish. Winemaker Michael Silacci has crafted a total gem in this vintage, and while its freshness and purity gives this immediate appeal, it should also without question have an absolutely brilliant future ahead. There is no reason to believe the 2015 won’t go on to ultimately become an all-time classic vintage from Opus One. 97/100


Parker über: Opus One

-- Parker: Blended of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec and displaying a medium to deep garnet-purple color, the Opus One 2015 Proprietary Red Wine is a sexy, beautiful spice-bomb, with tons of cinnamon stick, cloves, fenugreek and pepper notes springing forth over a core of mulberries, plum preserves, blackberry pie and fragrant earth plus a waft of lavender. The palate is big, voluptuous and totally decadent, with velvety tannins and just enough freshness framing the rich, spicy black fruits, finishing with a lovely perfumed lift. This wine was tasted as a tank sample, but it is due to be bottled soon. 96-98+/100
