OPUS ONE, 2012

NAPA VALLEY

“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.” Robert Parker 96/100

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.
