Opus One was founded by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, legendary proprietor of Château Mouton Rothschild, and renowned Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi. By combining the great winemaking traditions and innovations of both families, the founders’ singular goal was to create an exceptional wine in the heart of Napa Valley. Opus One, like any great work, arose out of passion. Dedicated to uncompromised quality, Opus One’s sole purpose is to express this vision and passionate spirit for generations to come.
Initial dark fruit, spice, and baking aromas in the 2016 Opus One Cabernet Sauvignon are interwoven with seductive notes of violet, black tea, and sage. The entry is vibrant with ripe dark fruit flavors of plum, blackberry, and
blueberry followed by hints of vanilla and cocoa. Silky, fine-grained tannins provide structure and a
creamy texture. The wine finishes with fresh acidity and a rich, lingering finish that promises longevity
in the cellar.
This is an Opus One magnum 1.5L bottle, which is twice the volume of a regular-sized bottle of wine. If you're looking for a premium wine to send as a gift and really make a statement, consider this bottle!
