Opus One, the best of both worlds

Opus One was founded by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, legendary proprietor of Château Mouton Rothschild, and renowned Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi. By combining the great winemaking traditions and innovations of both families, the founders’ singular goal was to create an exceptional wine in the heart of Napa Valley.

Opus One, like any great work, arose out of passion. Dedicated to uncompromised quality, Opus One’s sole purpose is to express this vision and passionate spirit for generations to come.

2019 vintage

Abundant spring rains, nearly double the annual average, saturated the soil and provided ample water for the growing season. The first signs of budbreak were observed in the vineyard 15 days later than usual. This delay led to later bloom and veraison. However, warmer temperatures toward the end of summer accelerated development and maturity. Harvest began on September 10th, a couple of days earlier than average and lasted four weeks.

Tasting Notes:

The Opus One 2019 has intense aromas of black plum, blueberry, black currant, and dried rose petals, accentuated by mineral undertones. The creamy, satiny texture is framed by fine grained tannins. The freshness and soft glow of acidity create a subtle tension with dark fruit flavors, savory herbs, espresso, and cocoa. A delicate dark chocolate bitterness lingers on the finish.

Blend :
• 78% - Cabernet Sauvignon
• 8% - Merlot
• 6% - Petit Verdot
• 6% - Cabernet Franc
• 2% - Malbec
