Lot #610. Opus One 2003

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 94 RP.
"This blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec aged 17 months in French oak is a strong effort offering creme de cassis, cedarwood, white chocolate and spice box. It possesses a Bordeaux-like personality, as one might expect since Opus One is owned by Baroness Philippe de Rothschild and the winemaking team comes primarily from Pauillac. The significant tannin in the wine provides a slight austerity, but this is a full-bodied, rich effort that marks the beginning of a period when Opus One finally began to live up to the enormous potential first announced in the late 1970s by the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild and the late Robert Mondavi." Wine Advocate #207, Jun 2013
Provenance: The Maquereau Cellar
Notes: Nicked, very lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $400
