Good To Know: Born from the partnership of Bordeaux giant, Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Napa Valley Legend, Robert Mondavi, Opus One has become one the most famous and collectable wines in the world. It was the first premium California wine sold in Europe, and is one of the original "Cult Cabernets", along the likes of Harlan Estate and Screaming Eagle.

2016 was the 5th consecutive year of a gruelling drought in Northern California yet the estate was fortunate enough to receive 28 ½ inches of rain which made the soil conditions ideal for the budbreak. The 2016 Opus One is quite elegant and bright brining a generous aroma of fresh red and blue fruit, baking spices, vanilla and a fragrance of spring florals. The initial bouquet si enhanced by more nuanced notes of sage, rosemary and black olive. Flavors of juicy black cherry, blackberry and cassis flood the palate. Creamy, fine-grained tannins deliver a delightfully round structure. The flavor, harmonious and lively. It lingers to create a long lasting finish and final touches of dark chocolate and espresso.

Conceived during the 70s and first realized in 1979, which also happened to be the same year the first vintage of Opus One was bottled. Both the 1979 and 1980 vintages were released to the public in 1984. By then, it had already garnered so much attention and acclaim to the point that a single case of the 1979 vintage had already sold for $24,000 during the first Napa Valley Wine Auction in 1981. The brand grew considerably in the 1990s, especially in the export markets. In 2005, when Robert Mondavi Winery was acquired by Constellation Brands, Opus One eventually became part-owned by the multi-national company.
