Very deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Opus One soars out of the glass with bright, bold boysenberries, warm cassis and ripe, juicy black plums notes, plus emerging nuances of lilacs, oolong tea, cinnamon stick, tilled soil and black truffles. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with tightly wound layers of crunchy black fruits, supported by firm, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing with lifted fruitiness and on a lingering mineral note.
Opus One had picked 91% of their fruit before the fires started in 2017, and only two lots were eliminated from consideration. The 2017 Opus One, bottled in July 2019, is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4.5% Merlot and 1% Malbec. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it slowly grows on the nose, revealing compelling notes of baked black cherries, mulberries, black raspberries, warm cassis and blackberry pie with nuances of spice cake, yeast extract, tapenade, licorice and dusty soil with a waft of wild sage. Medium-bodied, the palate has a lively skip in its step, featuring bags of juicy raspberry and cassis-laced fruit and a refreshing line, supported by ripe, plush tannins, finishing long and graceful.
Deep garnet colored, the 2014 Opus One opens with youthful notes of warm blackberries, chocolate-covered cherries, redcurrant jelly and blackcurrant pastilles with hints of bay leaves, tobacco leaf and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with a lively backbone and tightly wound black and red berry layers, it finishes with a compelling herbal lift.

Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

When two iconic winemakers get together to produce something of their own, there is no hesitation it will be nothing short of incredible. Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Château Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux and Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi combined their knowledge and skills and created Opus One, one of California’s most high profile wines.

“Wine to me is passion. It’s family and friends. It’s warmth of heart and generosity of spirit.” Robert Mondavi

They set out to create a single wine dedicated to the pursuit of uncompromising quality. Opus One is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot and is aged for 18 months in French barrels (100% new) and then another 18 months in bottle before it is released. The first vintage was in 1979.

"The standard is not to be excellent here, it is to be perfect.” Former Winemaker, Tim Mondavi

In 2004, David Pearson was named CEO of Opus One, and Michael Silacci was the first to assume full responsibility for viticulture and winemaking.

“Opus One is, in fact, a special place where we continue to feel the passion, drive and inspiration of our founders, Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild. What makes it so special are the people – cliché to be sure, but in this case the absolute truth. I am most proud of having the chance to work with them.” David Pearson, CEO

Napa Valley is acknowledged to be the world's second-best source of Cabernet Sauvignon/Bordeaux blends and Chardonnays, while Santa Barbara and Sonoma Counties are home to world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
