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.
One of Napa Valley’s best vintages in a decade, 1985 saw an early bud break, a long, moderate growing season and dry, warm weather during the harvest. Wines are rich, supple and very aromatic, showing great balance and length.
Cabernet Sauvignon 90%, Cabernet Franc 4% and Merlot 6%
