in 1979 by Robert Mondavi and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, the framework
of a joint venture was put together within one hour after a visit in
Bordeaux. They purchase a 50-acre ranch, the "River Parcel" in
Oakville, east of Highway 29 et choose a name of Latin origin
"OPUS" for easy recognition in French and English.
In 1984, the
1979 and 1980 vintages are simultaneously unveiled as Opus One's first
release... Aromas of blackberry, rose petals, chocolate and espresso accentuate fruity and earthy nuances. Round velvety tannins enrobe a silky texture with a touch of minerality. The flavors of dark fruit are enhanced by the well integrated acidity. The acidity and tannin structure promise a very long life ahead.
