Vintage 2001 produced small, concentrated berries and an excellent, unhurried harvest. The 2001 Opus One shows aromas of black currant, black cherry liqueur, plum, and fresh vanilla, with hints of graham cracker and black peppercorn. A supple, creamy entry is followed by intense flavors of ripe black cherry, cassis, and dark chocolate, finishing with lingering black fruit and savory spice.
