Wine Choices – Opus One’s Overture

We are so excited to be able to share one of our amazing wines.
Overture is the second wine of Opus One. It is the collaboration of Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux and Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi. Together, they set out to create a single wine dedicated to the pursuit of uncompromising quality. This singular mission shapes every vintage, today and for generations to come.
Aged in French oak, Overture is comprised of the five classic Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Full bodied but approachable in its youth, Overture shows generous dark fruit aromas and flavors with a soft, supple mid-palate.
Commentary from Wine.com (92 pts):
The Opus One Overture drinks famously well and is perfect for current enjoyment. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits alluring aromas and flavors of savory spices and red currants. Pair it with lightly-spiced roast chicken. (Tasted: August 24, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
Decanter (91 pts) writes:
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.
