Wine Spectator 92 points - Seductive and complex, with mocha, currant, plum, licorice, spice and cedary oak flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2028.-J.L..August/2016
Vinous 94 points - Dark cherries, plums, smoke, licorice, new leather and menthol race across the palate in the 2013 Opus One. Firm yet also voluptuous, the 2013 has it all. The combination of fruit and structure is superb. Today, the 2013 reminds me of the 2010 when it was young, especially in its energy and pure power. The flavor remain quite primary, one of the signatures of this great Napa Valley vintage. 94-96+ Points.Antonio Galloni, December/2014
Whisky Advocate "The 2013 Opus One, a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec, is a beauty. Velvety textured, without a had edge to be found, notes of crème de cassis, blueberry, subtle wood and floral notes gently rise from the wine’s dense purple color. Beautifully full-bodied and extraordinarily elegant and pure, this is certainly one of their great achievements over the last 37 years. The wine has an exquisite finish and can be drunk now or cellared for 25-30 years. Rating: 97+"
Vinous"The 2013 Opus One is powerful, dense and super-concentrated, with heady aromatics, intense fruit and an unreal level of richness for this wine. A host of dark cherry, crème de cassis, licorice, smoke and dark spices infuse this decidedly masculine, potent Opus One. Raw and intense to the core, the 2013 is going to require quite a bit of time to fully come into its own. Like so many wines in this vintage, Opus One possesses striking depth of fruit and a level of intensity that nearly covers the tannins. "
Wine Spectator "Seductive from the get-go, with a supple entry to the layers of complexity, mixing flavors of mocha, currant, plum, licorice, spice and cedary oak. Well-proportioned, showing a grip of fine-grained tannins that will benefit from cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2028."
James Suckling"The greatest Opus ever. Terrific aromas of crushed black currants, blueberries and flowers with hints of sweet tobacco. Roses continue to exude opulence and class. Full body, superb balance of ultra-fine tannins and vibrant acidity. Complex aftertaste of black fruits and citrus fruit. Extremely persistent. So approachable now and enjoyable. But will be even better in 2019 and beyond."
