ABOUT THE WINE
A joint venture between the Robert Mondavi company (the family are no longer involved) and the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild, based in the Oakville appellation within Napa Valley. One of the finest wines in California, and revered throughout the world. Initially a selection of the finest lots from the Mondavi Winery, since 1991 certain vineyard parcels came to be associated with Opus One, most notably the To-Kalon vineyard, which since 2005 has provided the core of the wine.

TASTING NOTES
Blackberry, rose petals and mocha aromas, with earth, cassis and leather providing nuance. Supremely silky on the palate, with rounded tannin and a bright mineral character; violet and lavender, a hint of mint and plenty of blackcurrant, black cherry and plum fruit. Supple and lingering, with truffle and charcoal on the finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Best enjoyed with substantial, yet subtle, foods which will allow the wine to shine – a fine steak with delicate seasoning, perhaps.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The 2010 vintage is considered one of the best ever for Opus One; just entering its drinking window, this wine will continue to improve until 2030.
