A joint venture between Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi, Opus One Winery was founded in 1978 with a mission to create a single Bordeaux style blend based upon Napa Valley fruit, mostly Cabernet Sauvignon. The Opus One estate is located across State Route 29 from the Robert Mondavi Winery. Rothschild's involvement in this project was big news in the wine world and cemented Napa Valley's status as a viable region for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec.

Wine SpectatorRich and creamy, intense and layered, featuring a mix of blackberry, licorice, mocha, cedar and tobacco flavors, with a touch of gravelly earth. The tannins are firm and gripping, standing out a bit from the core texture. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. Best from 2018 through 2030. 27,000 cases made.
