100 Points, James Suckling - The greatest Opus ever. Terrific aromas of crushed black currants, blueberries and flowers with hints of sweet tobacco. Roses continue to exude opulence and class. Full body, superb balance of ultra-fine tannins and vibrant acidity. Complex aftertaste of black fruits and citrus fruit. Extremely persistent. So approachable now and enjoyable. But will be even better in 2019 and beyond... This will always be beautiful to drink.
94-96 Points, Vinous - Dark cherries, plums, smoke, licorice, new leather and menthol race across the palate in the 2013 Opus One. Firm yet also voluptuous, the 2013 has it all. The combination of fruit and structure is superb. Today, the 2013 reminds me of the 2010 when it was young, especially in its energy and pure power. The flavor remain quite primary, one of the signatures of this great Napa Valley vintage.
94 Points, Decanter - Red and black fruits, graphite, incense and incipient cedar meld together in a youthfully reserved bouquet that should blossom in bottle.On the palate the 2013 is more seriously structured than its polished 2012 sibling, framed by savory structural tannins.This is built for the cellar and is the latest in a string of recent successes. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot.
92 Points, Wine Spectator - Seductive and complex, with mocha, currant, plum, licorice, spice and cedary oak flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
