Opus One is known for it's exquisite texture, and the 1999 vintage is no exception. The wine shows aromas of cassis, cloves and roasted almonds against a creamy texture of soft tannins and round, rich fruit. Offering flavors of plum, cherry and black pepper, the 1999 will be charming in it's youth and expressive at maturity.
Blend: 84% Cabernet sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
"An exquisite, complex, stylish wine, wearing a cloak of earthy, leathery tannins around flavors of mineral, currant, earth and blackberry. Gains intensity and shows its depth and concentration on the finish, which is long and detailed."
"Deep red-ruby. Sappy nose combines currant, smoked meat, tobacco and exotic spices. Rich, sweet and tactile, with complex, tangy flavors of crystallized blackcurrant, caraway seed and smoked meat. Unlike most Bordeaux blends from California, this shows little greenness or gratuitous oak and the finish builds impressively. A very suave wine that finishes with fine, spreading tannins."

Yesterday I drank one excellent bottle of 99 Opus One. It is similar of the best French and Spanish wines. Congratulations to the winery.

The fresh round fruit taste was delightful. I truly appreciated this wine in its youth and have purchased another bottle which I am sure will mesmerize me at its maturity
