A macroshot of a bottle of Overture
Vintage composition: 2017, 2018
Lot Number: L240820

Overture reflects the winemaker’s 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, Overture’s third blending aspect – that of marrying multiple vintages – yields a softer, rounder expression of our estate that can be enjoyed upon release.

Overture expresses aromas of ripe dark fruits with subtle undertones of olive tapenade and dried herbs. The juicy mouthfeel delivers layered flavors of espresso, strawberry, and lilac. Extended barrel aging provides a long, elegant finish with a satin texture.

The Essence of Place

Overture is a timeless reflection of our Opus One estate vineyards. This remarkable terroir expresses itself in the complex aromas, flavors and especially, textures of Overture. 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 give Overture a supple structure and silky texture.
