K&L Notes

Only recently made available as a commercial release, Overture has been the second wine of Opus since 1993, following in the tradition of the great Bordeaux estates. Made exactly like Opus One and sourced from the same estate vineyards, the Overture is a classic Bordeaux blend, with Cabernet Sauvignon making up around 70%.

    I took a whiff of this and the aromatics screamed Bordeaux! But with a Napa Valley sensibility, of course. You can smell how expensive the oak is they use in this, and trust me, they spare no expense in accessories at Opus One. I love the Overture because it's so much more open and gives immediate gratification, while their first label takes a few years in cellar to open up. This isn't usually released and is very rarely in stock. So take advantage.

    This release of Overture is a blend of 2010, 2011 and 2012. These 3 very different vintages combined to make a very interesting wine. A bit of power is coming from the 2010, acidity, finesse and complexity is coming from the 2011 and a big wallop of fruit is coming from the 2012. The Overture is made in the exactly same facilities, uses the same fruit sources and is made by the same wine-making team as Opus One. It just sells for less than half the price! Opus makes this wine to drink upon release and this wine is drinking excellent right now.
