Tasting note


The 2016 Opus One from Napa Valley is a testament to the art of winemaking. This bold and structured red wine exudes elegance and complexity, with a nose that captivates with spicy Boysenberry, delicate cornflower, and ripe cassis, complemented by wild raspberry, black plum, and violet undertones. Hints of nutmeg, sweet spices, and vanilla add to the olfactory symphony. On the palate, it presents a harmonious balance of fruitiness and finesse, rich with flavors of blackberry, cassis, and a touch of strawberry. The presence of small blue fruits, graphite, vanilla, and nutmeg creates a layered taste experience. The tannins are as elegant as they are persistent, leading to a suave, almost saline finish that lingers with notes of dark chocolate and espresso. A wine of remarkable poise, it is a celebration of the vision shared by Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Robert Mondavi.
