2017 Opus One

The latest vintage of a Napa icon

"A dense, full-throttle beauty"

95+ POINTS – ANTONIO GALLONI, VINOUS

Originally a joint venture between Château Mouton Rothschild and Robert Mondavi, Opus One has become one of the most famous, and desirable, wines in California, and the world. 

A true cult wine, it combines the expertise and elegance of classic Claret with Napa’s natural fruit ripeness. 

Today sees the release of the 2017 vintage. Opus One had harvested almost all their fruit by the time wild fires hit the region, and – in keeping with the remarkable attention to detail at this estate – any parcels that showed the slightest trace of smoke taint were sacrificed. 

The result is a wine that is both elegant and intense – having “a lively skip in its step” according to Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW. Antonio Galloni finds it distinctly red-fruited, “a remarkable wine for the year” that is “exotic, beautifully perfumed and impeccable in its balance”.

“A remarkable wine for the year, the 2017 Opus One is a dense, full-throttle beauty. Plush fruit and soft, silky contours give the 2017 its racy personality. Exotic, beautifully perfumed and impeccable in its balance, Opus One is one of the most complete wines of the vintage. In 2017, Opus One has a distinctly red-toned fruit profile that distinguishes it from the surrounding vintages. Drink 2023-2042."
