Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot
Region: Napa Valley, California
Elite Bordeaux estates issue a "second wine" comprised of young-vine batches and barrels that were not selected for their estate's Grand Vin. In California, Opus One, a collaboration originated by Robert Mondavi and Baron Phillippe de Rothschild, has reached that elite status as well, and the Overture is consistently as deep and complex as many of Napa's best efforts. Try this for a window on the Opus style that is approachable with less cellar time.
