Overture is the second wine of Opus One. Overture reflects the winemakers artistry by showcasing the talent of blending five traditional Bordeaux grape varieties and capturing terroir characteristics of the same variety grown in different soils. However, Overtures third blending aspect – that of marrying multiple vintages – yields a softer, rounder expression of the estate that can be enjoyed upon release. The classic blackberry and cassis character of Cabernet Sauvignon melds seamlessly with the black cherry, red currant and violet from the Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The blending of wine-lots across vintages and extended barrel aging gives Overture a supple structure and silky texture.
