Opus One had picked 91% of their fruit before the fires started in 2017, and only two lots were eliminated from consideration. The 2017 Opus One, bottled in July 2019, is a blend of 81 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 8,5% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4,5 % Merlot and 1% Malbec. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it slowly grows on the nose, revealling compelling notes of baked black cherries, mulberries, black raspberries, warm cassis and blackberry pie with nuances of spice cake, yeast extract, tapenade, licorice and dusty soil with a waft of wild sage. Medium-bodied, the palate has a lively skip in its steps, featuring bags of juicy raspberry and cassis-laced fruit and a refreshing line, supported by ripe, plush tannins, finishing long and graceful”.
