ABOUT THE WINE
A joint venture between the Robert Mondavi company (the family are no longer involved) and the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild, based in the Oakville appellation within Napa Valley. One of the finest wines in California, and revered throughout the world. The Overture is a non-vintage release which, until recently, was only available from the cellar door.

TASTING NOTES
The immense structure of Opus One requires extensive ageing before it becomes a pleasurable drinking experience; the company therefore decided to put together a second wine which would provide an idea of what a mature Opus One might be like. With extended barrel-ageing, and the inclusion of back-vintages of wine, the non-vintage Overture is a softer, more supple cousin to its illustrious stablemate. Abundant dark fruit, liquorice and black cherry compliment the vanilla and cedar notes from time in barrel. Bright and pleasurable.

FOOD PAIRING
Hefty; requires food with an element of sweetness to it. Barbecue sauce would make for a good pairing.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
An unusual project; superbly enjoyable.
