2017 Optu Red Mountain

2017 Optu Red Mountain

Optu Red Mountain is a block by block built Bordeaux-style blend. “Our 20th vintage of Optu is now resting in barrel, it’s definitely a nostalgic wine for me,” Charlie says. “It’s the wine that I’m thinking of first when I’m out walking the vineyards during harvest.” Optu is consistent with a base of Cabernet Sauvignon, but also allows us to source the select barrels of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc to complete the blend. The 2017 vintage is a star today but shows a depth and complexity that promises great potential in the cellar as well. “There is a little bit of art to winemaking, and a good blend really allows a winemaker to showcase that art.” Drink now through 2030.
