Opus One 6-Pack Wood Case (OWC) 1988
Bordeaux Red Blends from Napa Valley, California
6 bottles shipped with the Original Wood Crate
Erratic temperatures throughout the first few months of the season caused some shatter in the grape flowers and uneven rates of maturation. The resulting smaller crop and smaller berry size yielded tannic, full-bodied wines of significant potential.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot
