Eine Wein-Legende aus dem Jahrhundert-Jahrgang 2019

Vor genau 3 Jahren fand bei UNGER WEINE das legendäre 40 Jahre OPUS ONE Tasting 1979-2019 statt, in 2 Tagen alle jemals produzierten Jahrgänge von OPUS ONE ab dem ersten Jahrgang 1979, weltweit einmalig. Und nun rundet sich mit der Freigabe des Jahrganges 2019 OPUS ONE die Jubiläumszahl, 2019 ist ein absolut sensationeller Jahrgang für OPUS ONE, wir hatten den Wein in Kalifornien bereits verkostet und waren völlig hin und weg. Mit großer Vorfreude erwarteten wir den „official release“, nun ist es soweit, wir können Ihnen als der führende Kalifornien-Spezialist 2019 OPUS ONE anbieten. Sensationelle Bewertungen, der grandiose Jahrgang 2019, zudem ein Wein mit Welt-Prestige und grandiosem Alterungspotential, was will man mehr? Ordern!

1970 als sich ROBERT MONDAVI und BARON PHILIPPE DE ROTSCHILD erstmalig auf Hawaii trafen, entstand diese damals belächelte Idee. Daraus entstand eine der erfolgreichsten Kooperationen der Weinindustrie. 1979 wurde der erste Jahrgang lanciert und seitdem surft OPUS ONE auf einer Erfolgswelle sondergleichen, und das zu Preisen, zu denen kalifornische Kollegen nicht einmal deren Zweitwein offerieren. So wurden aus anfänglich 14 Hektar mittlerweile mehr als 110 Hektar, alle im berühmten Oakville District gelegen, der mit Namen wie Marthas Vineyard, To-Kalon, und vielen andere glänzen kann und als Grand Cru Terroir des Napa Valley gilt. Das Gebäude von OPUS ONE, ein tempelähnlicher, teilweise begrünter, klassischer Bau in Oakville, liegt direkt gegenüber von Mondavi und wurde, nachdem die ersten Jahrgänge noch bei Mondavi vinifiziert wurden, im Jahr 1991 eingeweiht. OPUS ONE zeigt, wen wundert es, angesichts der familiären Herkunft, eine Ähnlichkeit zu großen Bordeauxweinen, dies aber auf einem Niveau, wie es nur ganz wenig Weine weltweit können. Dabei ist die Cuvee nahezu klassisch komponiert mit Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, aber auch Malbec.

99 JAMES SUCKLING: "The purity of fruit is really something else here, with currants and fresh flowers, such as violets and roses. Flower stems as well. Fantastic length and structure to the wine, with tightness and focus. Wonderful fruit. Graceful. A blend of 78% cabernet sauvignon, 8% merlot, 7% petit verdot, 6% cabernet franc and 1% malbec. Try after 2028."

97-99 THE WINEADVOCATE: "Winemaker Michael Silacci commented that usually the blends are finished in January or February after the vintage. This year, with the 2019s, he was still tweaking the blend, but he did mention that this is "pretty close to the final blend." Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Opus One leaps from the glass with notes of Black Forest cake, Morello cherries, mulberries and fresh blackcurrants plus hints of licorice, wilted roses, Sichuan pepper and iron ore. Full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with juicy black, blue and red fruits, framed by velvety tannins and background freshness, finishing on a compelling earthy/mineral note. Tasted as a barrel sample, this is a truly magnificent Opus One in the making!"

98 DECANTER: "Intensely perfumed on the nose, rose petals, violets, deeply scented and seductive. Rich yet expansive on the palate, very open with dark chocolate, cherries, fragrant blackcurrant - sweet and scented, with satin-like tannins that effortlessly support the flavours. There is real drive and persistency to this, fresh, youthful and alive with a vibrant juiciness that is so appealing. No one element is too dominant, this feels harmonious and balanced with an excellent tangy acidity and long minty, herbal finish with edges of tobacco and dark chocolate. A classic Opus with breadth, finesse and energy. Grapes were harvested 10 days earlier than average, on 10th September with harvest lasting four weeks. 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec complete the blend. Ageing 19 months in new French oak."

96-98 JEB DUNNUCK: "Similarly ruby/purple-hued, the 2019 Opus One is cut from the same cloth as the 2018 yet has a touch more baby fat and opulence, at least as this stage. Beautiful black raspberry, cassis, toasted spice, lead pencil, and subtle oak all make an appearance, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a rounded, layered mouthfeel, impressive tannins, and a great finish. I don't think it has the same precision as the 2018, but it brings another level of hedonism. It's another beautiful wine from this team. The blend is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot."

Wir können Ihnen 2019 OPUS ONE nur wärmstens ans Herz legen, 2019 ist ein absolut grandioser Jahrgang, der Ihnen über viele Jahr(-zehnte) ausnehmend viel Spaß bereiten wird!

ANTONIO GALLONI: "The 2019 Opus One is a dense, beautifully layered wine, but it is also quite restrained. That should serve it well in time. Tasted next to the 2018, the 2019 possesses a bit more textural nuance and body, yet it has all the classicism that is such an Opus One signature. Bright floral accents linger on the sublime finish."

JANCIS ROBINSON: "Transparent crimson - much paler than the average Napa Cab blend. Heady, complex nose with very many more layers than the Overture launched at the same time, September 2022 on the Bordeaux Place. Hints of tobacco leaf as well as very ripe fruit. Really high toned; this could double as a nasal decongestant, I think. Much more pronouned cassis flavours than the Overture even though the proportion of Cabernet is much lower. Sweet palate entry but a real lift and kick on the finish. No heaviness at all. A little less bordelais than the 2018: richer but not concentrated or overripe in the stereotypical Napa Cab idiom. I'd love to see this blind in a line-up with other Napa Cabs. Tannins very well managed with a tiny chewiness on the very end. You could drink it already, but on past performance one has to believe it has ageing potential."

WINESPECTATOR: "Elegantly styled, despite some serious heft, this offers a mix of alluring mulberry, griotte and cassis notes bearing a gently mulled edge, while flashes of apple wood, sweet bay leaf and red tea flicker along the edges. Very refined in feel, with seamless structure extending the finish so the fruit can linger. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Drink now through 2038."
