Opus One - Overture N.V.

A starry collaboration

A Cal¬≠i¬≠for¬≠nia red wine from the Oakville vine¬≠yards of the famed Napa Val¬≠ley, the Opus One Over¬≠ture is a Bor¬≠deaux blend that ranks among the top 1% of all wines in the world.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Dry and mild¬≠ly acidic, this Napa Val¬≠ley gem comes in a deep blood red col¬≠or, sug¬≠gest¬≠ing at its bold taste.

Flo¬≠ral and sweet on the nose, the Opus One Over¬≠ture gives notes of oak, vanil¬≠la, and choco¬≠late, with hints of dark berries and smoke.

It has a beau¬≠ti¬≠ful, ele¬≠gant and vel¬≠vety tex¬≠ture on the palate, almost silky. This Bor¬≠deaux grape blend deserves a place on your shelf, no doubt.

PREPA­RA­TION AND PAIRINGS

This Cal­i­for­nia wine shines when paired with cheeses like mun­ster, smoked gou­da, ched­dar, or manchego.

But the tan¬≠nins in this wine smooth out beau¬≠ti¬≠ful¬≠ly with red meats. We sug¬≠gest a sump¬≠tu¬≠ous slow roast spiced lamb shoul¬≠der. The fat¬≠ti¬≠ness of the meat, com¬≠bined with the spices used for roast¬≠ing, plus the rich¬≠ness of your Opus One Over¬≠ture? That is a feast fit for roy¬≠al¬≠ty, right on your din¬≠ner table.

BREAK­ING BARRIERS

Opus One is a sin¬≠gle wine, sourced from the estate vine¬≠yards of Oakville. The first pre¬≠mi¬≠um Cal¬≠i¬≠for¬≠nia wine to be sold in Europe, it‚Äôs also one of the orig¬≠i¬≠nal ‚Äč‚ÄúCult Caber¬≠nets‚ÄĚ that gained a size¬≠able fol¬≠low¬≠ing. To this day, it remains the most expen¬≠sive Caber¬≠net Sauvi¬≠gnon-dom¬≠i¬≠nant wine pro¬≠duced in the Napa Valley.

A star¬≠ry col¬≠lab¬≠o¬≠ra¬≠tion in the 1970‚Äôs between Baron Philippe de Roth¬≠schild and Robert Mon¬≠davi, two high¬≠ly respect¬≠ed fig¬≠ures from Bor¬≠deaux and the Napa Val¬≠ley, the Opus One was first released in 1979. It gained par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar atten¬≠tion, though, when a sin¬≠gu¬≠lar case of it sold for $24,000 in 1981, at the First Napa Val¬≠ley Auc¬≠tion. It was released for the pub¬≠lic mar¬≠ket in 1984.

True to Bor¬≠deaux tra¬≠di¬≠tions, they released a sec¬≠ond wine‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthe Opus One Over¬≠ture, in 1993.
