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.
88 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2002
Bright red-ruby. Captivating aromas of currant, smoky French oak, coffee, game and animal fur. Sweet and meaty in the mouth, with lovely texture and suggestions of exotic spices. Opens out nicely on the back half in a way that few of these '87s do; has a mouthfeel I can only describe as claret-like. A firmly structured wine, with rich, evolved flavors. Finishes with broad, ripe tannins.
