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. The 2011 is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec.

Wine AdvocateTwo of the strongest wines ever made at Opus One, the 2007 has terrific black currant fruit, licorice, incense, and subtle smoke, an opulent, even voluptuous mouthfeel, dazzling purity and texture, and a skyscraper-like mouthfeel. This is a sensational Opus One, with sweet tannin and impressive precision and depth. It can be drunk now or cellared for 25+ years.

Wine SpectatorTight and firm, with a chewy edge to the dried currant, graphite, blackberry and mineral notes. Full-bodied and intense, without being weighty, this is well-structured with a complex, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2012 through 2022. 17,500 cases made.
