A joint venture between Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Chateau 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 an important region for growing Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine SpectatorThis bold, rich and assertive red is firm and concentrated, displaying a mix of dried currant, blackberry, wild berry and spice flavors, ending with loamy earth and melted black licorice notes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Best from 2014 through 2025.
