I'm not sure I agree with the high ratting of this wine. It has a lead pencil and smoky aroma to it and a sweet taste. Also I think it's a bit over priced.

WHAT A TREAT! 

With a rating of 100 and a hint of espresso. It earned it's ratting for a good reason. It's great you have to try it to see what I mean.

This white Bordeaux with its ratting of 100 is a very beautiful wine it has a little hint of green to it light golden color. The aromas of orange marmalade, pineapple, sweet crème brulee, honeyed tropical fruit, and buttered nut like scents come out more after airing. This full bodied white Bordeaux is very refreshing.

WOW!! What a work of art! This wine looks a beautiful as it tastes. It's purple and deep red it complemented by its aromas that remind me of breakfast with toast, coffee, crème de cassis and roasted nuts. But it's the bottle that makes it a fully rounded work of art both inside and out.

This Bordeaux is just alright. I mean it looks good in the glass wine plum purple and ruby red colors. But as for the aromas I'm not sure I like the coffee and wood smoke smells. It is how ever a very lush full bodied and complex blend.

FINALY!!!! This wine is a breath of fresh air. It is much better then 2000, 99, or 98. this almost Bordeaux style wine has a dark plum and ruby color to it. With a clean elegant and restraint aromas of Plums and black currants this medium bodied wine is a much needed improvement.

This wine is not much different then the 98 or the 99. Boaring!!  It has a very strong smell to it almost smells like a locker room. YUCK!!  It is a medium bodied wine. The smell of this wine ruined the whole thing for me.

I think that the 98 Opus One is an ok wine.  To me it's a wine that can be easily forgotten. There isn't a lot of things that make this wine stand out to me.  It has a weak ruby and garnet color to it. it has a cherry, plum, cedar aroma with hints of oak and roasted peanuts. This is a light to medium blend with a short finish.

This is a very good Bordeaux. This wine looks nice with its dark purple and ruby coloring. With a fragrance that is filled with mixed berry, nuts and vanilla. This full bodied Bordeaux is sure to grow in flavor as it matures. With a high rating of 98 I was very excited to experience this wine.

This is a great Bordeaux. This Bordeaux has a very dense purple and ruby coloring. Making it very inviting to drink. With aromas of liquor stones, graphite, and black cherries this Bordeaux is very lively and fresh. It also has more alcohol and tannin then 2003.
