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 a viable region for growing Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine AdvocateA glorious perfume of sweet charcoal, truffle, black currants and spice box soars from the glass of the saturated purple-colored 2010 Opus One. The gorgeous aromatics are followed by a beautifully knit, full-bodied red blend (84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5.5% Merlot, 5.5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec) displaying lots of spicy black currant fruit, medium to full body, velvety tannins, and not a hard edge to be found. The texture, length and richness are all impressive. This estate has been making great Cabernet-based wines for nearly a decade ... and this is another one. Drink it over the next 20+ years.

Wine SpectatorOffers both a rich, supple, seamless core of earthy dark berry and touches of rustic loam and dried leather scents, the latter of which give this a drying sensation on the palate. Ends with dried herb, olive and savory notes that Opus fans will love, others perhaps less so. A classic Opus. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2026. 26,000 cases made.
