1994 Opus One, Napa Valley, USA

Opus One was founded by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, legendary proprietor of Château Mouton Rothschild, and renowned Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi. By combining the great winemaking traditions and innovations of both families, the founders’ singular goal was to create an exceptional wine in the heart of Napa Valley.

Opus One, like any great work, arose out of passion. Dedicated to uncompromised quality, Opus One’s sole purpose is to express this vision and passionate spirit for generations to come.

VINTAGE 1994
Napa Valley’s 1994 vintage produced wines of extraordinary concentration, depth and balance. Winter and spring rains provided just 75 to 80 % of average rainfall, but moderate temperatures kept the vines from becoming water-stressed. Sunny and dry, March’s weather resulted in an early bud break. The following months were cooler than average, extending the growing season significantly. Showing a profound depth of color, the 1994 Opus One has a rich, full body with supple, velvety tannins and intense aromas of licorice and spice. Retaining great freshness and elegance, the 1994 is a powerful wine which will improve for decades.

VARIETALS
Cabernet Sauvignon 93%, Cabernet Franc 4%, Merlot 2% and Malbec 1%

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

This is an impressive effort from Opus One. The wine, a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot, and 1% Malbec, possesses a dark ruby/purple color, followed by a generous, complex nose of lead pencil, toasty oak, violets, and black currants. In the mouth, there is a beautiful texture, soft, generous, low acid, full-bodied richness, and a stunningly proportioned, rich, intense finish. The influence of 18 months in new French oak casks gives the wine a subtle oaky note in addition to giving it excellent delineation. Because of the wine's softness and generosity, it can be drunk now as well as over the next 18-20 years. Reviewed by Robert M. Parker, Jr., Issue date: December 1997. Drinking window: 1997 - 2017.

What a pleasure it is to taste and drink the 1994 Opus One. Far better than a bottle I had last year, this bottle is absolutely terrific. Voluptuous, sexy and layered to the core, the 1994 races across the palate with superb depth and pure class. Reviewed by Antonio Galloni, Issue date: September 2014. Drinking window: 2014 - 2024.
