The year began with unseasonably warm and dry conditions creating a mild anxiety over water needs for the vintage; however, in March the rains returned just in time for bud-break and provided the water needed for rest of the year. Mother Nature continued to favor the vintage with an ideal growing season characterized by moderate temperatures and bountiful sunshine. At harvest, the fruit exhibited the classic style of our Oakville estate vineyards with incredible depth of flavor, layers of complexity and excellent structure. Picking started on September 21st at the fresh fruit stage of ripeness to keep flavors bright and lively. Through careful and precise management of the incoming fruit, harvest continued evenly until it was completed on October 20th.
The 2012 Opus One effuses fresh dark fruit aromas accentuated by subtler notes of forest-floor and graphite. The wine’s round mouthfeel and satiny tannins wrap around classic flavors of cassis, blackberry and black cherry. This refined and age-worthy wine simultaneously offers a long lingering finish, with lively acidity and a sturdy structure at the close.
