Oak dominates in the wine’s youth, with scents of wood and smoky earth. In the mouth, rich and dense. The tannins are thick, but soft and melted. Acidity kicks in on the finish. Structurally superb, but curiously lean and herbal in flavor, as thought it…
There are 18,000-20,000 cases of the 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, one of the finest efforts from this difficult vintage. The wine is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Merlot and Malbec. It exhibits a deep purple color as well as an elegant, sweet perfume of black currants intertwined with licorice, loamy soil, and hints of mints as well as new oak. It is ripe, long, and structured, with medium to full body, outstanding purity and concentration, and a persistent finish. This elegant Cabernet will be at its finest between 2006-2020.
With a vision to create world famous wines in the heart of Napa Valley, Robert Mondavi began his quest in 1966 by choosing the To Kalon Vineyard as his first endeavor. He wanted to pioneer a renaissance in the Napa Valley with his passionate and meticulous approach to eventually compete with the wines of Bordeaux. Residing in Oakville, Mondavi wines have continued to carry the torch as a true Cabernet Sauvignon based estate garnering consistently high scores from world renowned critics.
Robert partnered with Baron Philippe Rothschild of Mouton Rothschild in 1979 to create a Bordeaux-style blend in Napa Valley. The goal was create an exquisite and beautiful wine at first-growth quality from the fertile soils of Oakville. Opus One made the leap becoming one of the most sought after reds in the New World by consistently meeting wine lovers ever-growing expectations of quality.
