Heiner Lobenberg über:
Opus One 2016


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 und langlebig. 98-100/100


Suckling über: Opus One

-- Suckling: Fantastic aromas that are complex and complete with blackcurrants, blueberries and herbs, such as basil and bay leaf. But always subtle. Full-bodied yet linear and very refined with a very persistent finish. It shows drive and brightness. So refined at the end. Needs at least three to five years to come together. 99/100


Parker über: Opus One

-- Parker: 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, crème 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. 97+/100

International Wine Report: über: Opus One

-- International Wine Report:: The 2016 Opus One is absolutely outstanding. Michael Silacci crafted a simply sensational wine in this vintage, composed of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec. It begins with seductive aromas of crème de cassis, blueberries, spring floral, graphite and a dusting of dried savory herbs all emerging beautifully from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied and voluptuous, displaying outstanding structure with plush velvety tannins wrapping the beautiful core of ripe dark fruits. It goes on to impress with its wonderful depth and concentration leading up to the long graceful finish. The 2016 is another remarkable wine from Opus One, and while already quite accessible, it also looks to have a remarkably bright future, with the potential to evolve for decades. 98/100
