About Opus One
The brainchild of wine giants Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, Opus One was the first ultra-premium wine made in Napa Valley. Since 1980 it has achieved cult status and is one of the most widely exported and highly prized wines in Napa.

($169) Deep ruby-red. Slightly musty aromas of dark berries, pepper and nutty oak, with a hint of vegetility lurking.Sweeter on the palate than the nose suggests, with syrupy dark fruit flavors compromised by veggie notes and an animal character. Rather clumsy-and not squeaky-clean. Finishes with dusty, drying tannins and a cloying sweetness. Recent vintages of this once-superb wine have been very disappointing.
