OPUS ONE, 2002

NAPA VALLEY

“I tend to think that recent vintages of Opus One are even greater than vintages made during this era, but the 2002 is certainly one of the top wines Opus has produced during the early part of this century. It boasts a dense plum/purple hue along with a striking bouquet of graphite, toasty oak, creme de cassis and acacia flowers. Full-bodied, opulent and young, it offers accessibility as well as silky tannins. A thoroughly complete wine that is pure and rich, it tastes like a hypothetical blend of a great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon married to a Bordeaux Pauillac. Bravo!” Wine Advocate 94/100

Histoire et anecdotes

Founded in 1970, Opus One was established by Robert Mondavi and the Baron Philippe de Rothschild who wanted to create a great American wine from the Napa Valley with an equivalent quality to the Premiers Grands Crus of Bordeaux. On the bottle tag there is a blue drawing with the faces of Baron de Rothschild and Robert Mondavi, overhanging their signatures.
