Vineyard
To create Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon, Tony sourced grapes from throughout Napas finest winegrowing regions, including Oakville, Oak Knoll, Yountville, Chiles Valley and Capell Valley. By layering fruit from Napas sparse volcanic soils and the deeper alluvial soils of the valley floor, Tony accomplished his goal of marrying many different expressions into one outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon that boasts a beautifully seamless mouthfeel and rich, complex texture and flavors.


After the grapes were gently hand-harvested, de-stemmed and crushed, the Cabernet Sauvignon fermented in stainless steel tanks with an extended post-fermentation maceration. Malolactic fermentation with French oak, combined with 14 months aging (45% new French oak), helped to marry the wines flavors and tannins. During blending, Tony looks to other complimentary varieties to help express Oberon Cabernets lovely flavor and texture. With a kiss of Syrah, a dash of Merlot he helped to create Oberons deep colors, supple silky tannins, and vibrant black cherry, candied blackberry and spices. A hint of coffee and dark chocolate create a lingering and delightful finish. 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% other blending varietals.
