The iconic 2012 Proprietary Red Opus One is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot and 2% Malbec aged 18 months in French oak. A classy, complex, suave and savory 2012 Opus One, with notes of toasty oak and crème de cassis. This Pauillac lookalike, made by the staff at Mouton Rothschild, is a beauty. They have continued to strengthen the quality of wine and seem to have produced a brilliant, world-class wine. I imagine the 2013 may even eclipse this, but this 2012 is one of their great ones, with a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood all present in this beautiful, full-bodied wine that should drink well for 25-30 years.

Tasting note


The 2012 Opus One is a symphony of complexity and elegance, hailing from the prestigious Napa Valley. This wine exudes dark fruit aromas with an undercurrent of forest-floor and graphite, leading to a palate where classic flavors of cassis, blackberry, and black cherry shine through. The round mouthfeel and satiny tannins are complemented by lively acidity and a sturdy structure, culminating in a long, lingering finish. This age-worthy wine is a testament to the legacy of its founders, Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Robert Mondavi, and their commitment to uncompromising quality.
