Overture is the second wine of Opus One. Until now, this wine has been only available at the winery and a few select restaurants! Limited.
Overture" is Opus One's homage to the Bordeaux blend. Varietals are blended across multiple vintages to achieve a final non-vintage wine that is complex and elegant.. Made exactly like the Opus One and sourced from the same estate vineyards, the Overture too is a classic Bordeaux blend with Cabernet Sauvignon making up around 70%. Aged in French oak, Overture is comprised of the five classic Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Full bodied but approachable in its youth, Overture shows generous dark fruit aromas and flavors with a soft, supple mid-palate. As a fine wine, Overture will develop beautifully over time.
In keeping with the tradition of many great Bordeaux estates, Opus One produces a fine second wine called Overture. Since 1993, Overture has been crafted as a part of our relentless pursuit of quality for Opus One. Every acre of our estate vineyard is farmed with the attention to detail and singular focus required to produce Opus One. Nevertheless, in any given year, not all of the parcels from our estate are selected for the final blend of Opus One. When these wine lots are afforded additional time in barrel, in combination with the added flexibility of blending across multiple vintages, the final wine achieves a remarkable elegance and complexity that represents a superb expression of our estate. This is Overture.
