We are pleased to offer the just-released 2018 Opus One. Achieving 99 points from James Suckling, the benchmark California red wine from the heart of Napa Valley is exactly what we’ve come to expect vintage after impeccable vintage: “full-bodied, yet ever so balanced and refined, with super fine tannins.” The 2018 Opus is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and a touch of Malbec.
The historic joint venture between Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Robert Mondavi set out to create a single wine dedicated to the pursuit of uncompromising quality. The wine’s quintessential Bordeaux structure is accentuated by robust Oakville terroir and exquisitely balanced to shape the unique character of each vintage.
All wines are subject to availability.
$925 per magnum
The current release of Opus One’s MV Overture is also on offer. Overture utilizes the same blending techniques as the estate’s grand vin and additionally incorporates wines from prior vintages, yielding a softer, rounder expression that can be enjoyed upon release. This wine is available in limited quantities and is expected to sell out quickly!
“A remarkable wine for the year, the 2017 Opus One is a dense, full-throttle beauty. Plush fruit and soft, silky contours give the 2017 its racy personality. Exotic, beautifully perfumed and impeccable in its balance, Opus One is one of the most complete wines of the vintage.” — Antonio Galloni
“Fantastic aromas that are complex and complete with blackcurrants, blueberries and herbs, such as basil and bay leaf. But always subtle. Full-bodied yet linear and very refined with a very persistent finish. It shows drive and brightness. So refined at the end.” — James Suckling
“Purity and brilliance on the nose with so much currant and flower character. Roses, currant bush and fresh leaves, too. Brightness is the word that comes to mind. Full-bodied and broad-shouldered. Balance is so wonderful here. All about harmonious fruit and tannin balance.” — James Suckling
“Mesmerizing aromas of flowers, bark, currants and blackberries. So perfumed. Exquisite tension and finesse with an almost Burgundian texture, yet it’s Napa in its soul with ripe fruit, stones, spices and Chinese tea leaf flavors. Savory and delicious.” — James Suckling
