予想される飲み頃：1996 - 2004
Most of the early Opus One vintages (1979-1986), have neither lived up to their early hype, nor the quality level implied by their bold pricing. The 1986 exhibits a medium dark plummy color with some lightening at the edge. The reluctant bouquet offers moderately intense, straightforward aromas of new oak, earth, and currants. Clipped and compressed on the palate, but elegant, with purity and a Bordeaux-like austerity, this appears to be a very good, yet polite and understated wine. It should last for 7-8 years, but I suspect it will continue to lose its fruit.The tasting notes for this section are from two single blind tastings, one conducted in May, 1996, in California, and the other in June, 1996, in Baltimore.
