Description

 
Opus One is a partnership founded by Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Chateau mouton Rothschild in Pauillac, France, and renowned Napa Valley vintner, Robert Mondavi.
 
Producing luxury wines from its Napa Valley vineyards, the partnership made its first vintage in 1979 and has made wine at Opus one since 1991.
 
The winery owns vineyards in Oakville and grows Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
 
About 30,000 cases are produced annually. In 2005 Constellation Brands purchased the Robert Mondavi Corp. and assumed 50% of the ownership of Opus One.
 
The other half is still owned by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, S.A.
 
Drink this impressive, user-friendly yet richly concentrated effort over the next 15 years.
 
 

Tasting Notes

 
Nose: A striking, intense bouquet of sweet liquorice intermixed with blackberries, cassis, plums, and saddle leather.
 
Palate: This seamless, full-bodied wine is more velvety-textured, opulent, and succulent than past vintages. The mid-palate is expansive and chewy.
 
Finish: The long finish is filled with glycerin, ripe fruit, and sweet tannin.
