Extreme weather conditions in 2008 - from an unseasonably cold April to an extended heat spell in September - led to Opus One's smallest per-acre yield in thirty-two vintages.

Aromas of rose petals, cassis and black cherry in the 2008 combine with notes of marzipan and sandalwood.

A satin texture enrobes the wine's smooth, round tannins, its bright acidity supporting a juicy and elegant mouthfeel.

This precocious and remarkable wine offers a long finish, with traces of clove and dark chocolate.
