Lot #672. Opus One 1983

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92 AG.
"The 1983 Opus One is absolutely impeccable. Dark red cherries, plums, licorice, tobacco and leather meld together in a wine that is all about balance. Soft and engaging, the 1983 is a great choice for drinking now and over the next decade. The 1983 isn't as huge or structured as some of the other vintages in this vertical, but it is drop-dead gorgeous. Both 1982 and 1983 show the characteristics of wet vintages with large crops that resulted in somewhat compact wines. In 1983 the Cabernet Sauvignon is a bit low for the era at 80%, while the rest of the blend is composed of 13% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot." Vinous, Jun 2013
Provenance: The Alton Cellar
Notes: Lightly damp stained, lightly scuffed label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $250
