2020 opus one, overture, napa valley
Why We're Buying
Like a concerto, Overture is a powerful and harmonious yet delicate wine, something that can move people emotionally. It blends new and old-world wines through the use of world-class cabernet sauvignon. Given a decade-plus of aging, this second wine from Opus One will achieve remarkable elegance and sophistication.
Overture is a blend this year of the 2014, 2015 and 2016 vintages, with a dominance of 2016. This is supple with clear ripe berry fruits, generous and fully ripe, tempered by white pepper spice and smoked cedar notes. It has a gentle but confident tannic frame and mouthwatering lift on the finish. This is focused and ready to drink and impresses with its rippling silk texture.
