Opus One

Opus One

Opus One is a wine producer located in Oakville, Napa Valley, California, known for its Bordeaux-style blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon. Opus One was founded by Baron Philippe de Rothschild, owner of Château Mouton Rothschild in Pauillac, France, and the famous wine producer from the Napa Valley, Robert Mondavi. Combining the great wine traditions and innovations of the two families, the unique goal of the founders is to create an exceptional wine in the heart of the Napa Valley. At the time, such an investment by a legendary Bordeaux family helped establish the Napa Valley's reputation as a world wine region. The first harvests bore the label Napamédoc, while in 1982 the first Opus One was released, borrowing the name from classical music, where it served to denote the first significant work of a composer. It matures in French oak barrels for about 18 months and is a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and smaller quantities of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. The second wine, called Overture, is a combination of batches from different vintages that did not enter the final blend of Opus One. They spend extra time in the barrel to develop a more accessible and early performance. Without a doubt, Opus One is one of the best and most famous wineries in California.

California

California is the largest and most important wine region in the United States. It extends to an impressive ten degrees latitude, which inevitably offers a variety of climatic and microclimatic conditions. And when you add the relief diversity - mountains, valleys, plains and plateaus, it becomes clear that there is a truly amazing selection of terroirs. The country's viticultural history dates back to the 18th century, when settlers and missionaries made their way to the west coast. However, California wines have only gained worldwide fame in the last few decades - and especially after the Paris verdict of 1976, when in a blind tasting, Californian representatives in both white and red wines won without appeal to the French. Today, California hosts some of the world's largest wine companies, as well as some boutique wineries with cult and expensive wines, the subject of connoisseurs and collectors. The main varieties grown in California are Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, but recently Pinot Noir, Merlot and Syrah wines have also been successful. Perhaps the most distinctive and terroir variety in California (and in the United States as a whole) is Zinfandel (Primitivo in Italy), which has found wonderful conditions for development here. The cooler and northern regions, closer to the Atlantic coast (Sonoma), are more suitable for cooling Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, while inland - Napa - is home to the most famous red wines in California based on Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cabernet Sauvignon

This is probably the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth - a natural crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. From its origins in Bordeaux, this vine has successfully spread to almost every wine growing country in the world. Cabernet Sauvignon wines always demonstrate a handful of common character traits: deep color, excellent tannic structure and aromas of black berries and spices.
