"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." 99/100, James Suckling 

"A blend of 77.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 1.5% Malbec, the Opus One 2016 Proprietary Red Wine was recently bottled in July and August 2018. Very deep purple-black, the nose reveals profound notions of chocolate-covered cherries, crème de cassis, blueberry compote and licorice with touches of tobacco, cedar chest, Sichuan pepper, eucalyptus and violets. Full-bodied, super concentrated and packed with black and blue fruits, the palate is built like a brick house with firm, ripe, finely grained tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and perfumed. This a very decadent expression of Opus One with a provocatively effortless harmoniousness that is truly difficult to resist." 97+/100, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate 

“Clearly one of the great wines of Napa.” “Represents the pinnacle of French viticultural knowledge combined with that of California and Napa’s Shangri La-like microclimate.” Robert Parker 

“Opus One seems to have entered a new found period of brilliance.” Antonio Galloni

Arguably the most famous of all California’s great wines, under Michael Silacci, winemaker since 2000, Opus One is going from strength to strength and fulfilling the dream of the original collaboration between the Mondavi and Rothschild families to make one of the greatest wines in the world.
