Opus One is the story of the shared dream of two men. Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Chateau Mouton Rothschild and Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi. The joint venture that came to be called Opus One produced its first vintage in 1979 and opened as a winery in 1991.
Situated in the Oakville Appellation of Napa Valley, Opus One’s estate vineyard is comprised of 169 acres in four parcels, and is planted to the traditional grape varieties of Bordeaux: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec.
Opus One is dedicated to the pursuit of absolute quality and the creation of a single wine of balance, complexity and power. Through our wine we share the pride and passion of attaining a rare luxury, and the delight of enjoyment with friends and family.
Opus One is dedicated to uncompromised quality and to expressing the vision and passionate spirit of its founders, for generations to come.

The greatest Opus ever. Terrific aromas of crushed black currants, blueberries and flowers with hints of sweet tobacco. Roses continue to exude opulence and class. Full body, superb balance of ultra-fine tannins and vibrant acidity. Complex aftertaste of black fruits and citrus fruit. Extremely persistent. So approachable now and enjoyable. But will be even better in 2019 and beyond. 79% cabernet sauvignon, 7% cabernet franc, 6% merlot, 6% petit verdot, 2% malbec. This will always be beautiful to drink. (1/15/16)

Dark cherries, plums, smoke, licorice, new leather and menthol race across the palate in the 2013 Opus One. Firm yet also voluptuous, the 2013 has it all. The combination of fruit and structure is superb. Today, the 2013 reminds me of the 2010 when it was young, especially in its energy and pure power. The flavor remain quite primary, one of the signatures of this great Napa Valley vintage. (AG) (12/2014)

Seductive from the get-go, with a supple entry to the layers of complexity, mixing flavors of mocha, currant, plum, licorice, spice and cedary oak. Well-proportioned, showing a grip of fine-grained tannins that will benefit from cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
