Composed of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot and 2% Malbec, Opus One's 2015 Proprietary Red Wine is truly an iron fist in a velvet glove, delivering a powerhouse of flavors and structure with a seductively plush texture. It opens with a deep garnet-purple color and wonderfully spicy notes of cinnamon stick, cloves and fenugreek with a core of cherry preserves, redcurrant jelly, blackberry pie and warm plums plus hints of camphor, lavender and cigar box. Full-bodied, rich and bold in the mouth, it fills the palate with exotic spice-laced black and red fruits, framed by firm, beautifully ripe, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing with epic persistence.

Tasting note


The 2018 Opus One is a beautifully balanced wine with a soft, creamy mouthfeel. It offers profuse aromas of blackberry, cassis, and black cherry, followed by elegant notes of violets, white pepper, and rose petals. The flavors build to a crescendo of fresh and juicy black-fruit, accented with hints of orange zest, licorice, and dark chocolate. The smooth round tannins and fresh acidity extend the flavors into a long persistent finish. This wine is the result of the combined efforts of Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Chateau Mouton Rothschild in Bordeaux and Napa Valley vintner Robert Mondavi, who set out to create a single wine dedicated to the pursuit of uncompromising quality.
