Opus One Wines: Where Luxury and Legacy Begin


Two bottles of wine next to a wooden box


 When looking back into how we got introduced into the realm of fine wine; we often remember our first Opus One bottle. From the pedigree to the one-of-a-kind label, we instantly fell in love with this classic!

Opus One was founded in 1979 as a collaboration between two of wines greatest families, Baron Philippe de Rothschild of Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi. The goal was simple – create the absolute best Bordeaux style blend based upon Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This venture was groundbreaking , the wine phenomenal and it sparked the Californian premium wine market, establishing itself as the essential  ‘California Cult wine’ almost immediately. Despite its large production, pristine cases of Opus One become very difficult to acquire only a few years after release.

The collection below has some incredible back vintages at amazing  prices. The 2016 Opus One is going to be firing on all cylinders and Jeb Dunnuck even said that:

 "The 2016 Opus One is brilliant and shows yet again that 2016 was a magical vintage for Napa Valley." (Jeb Dunnuck) 


2019 12-pack of 375mL bottles that are ALWAYS handy to have around the house. When you are just looking to have a glass of wine for the evening...this will be PERFECT! 

Happy Shopping! 




2016 Opus One 

"Fantastic aromas that are complex and complete with blackcurrants, blueberries and herbs, such as basil and bay leaf. But always subtle. Full-bodied yet linear and very refined with a very persistent finish. It shows drive and brightness. So refined at the end. Needs at least three to five years to come together."

2018 Opus One 

"Extremely perfumed and floral with lavender, lilacs and violets to the sweet, ripe berries, such as blackberries and blackcurrants. Some slate and graphite, too. It’s full-bodied, yet ever so balanced and refined, with super fine tannins that last for minutes. Fresh herbs, such as bay leaf and lemon grass highlight the dark fruit. The quality of tannin is exquisite with wonderful polish and refinement. Lasts for minutes. So wonderful to taste now, but better after 2026."

2019 Opus One 

"The purity of fruit is really something else here, with currants and fresh flowers, such as violets and roses. Flower stems as well. Fantastic length and structure to the wine, with tightness and focus. Wonderful fruit. Graceful. A blend of 78% cabernet sauvignon, 8% merlot, 7% petit verdot, 6% cabernet franc and 1% malbec. Try after 2028."
