Description
Napa Valley native and winemaker, Tony Coltrin, brings more than 40 years of winemaking experience to Oberon, with expertise in sourcing quality fruit from the best vineyards in the valley and understanding the region’s uniqueness for growing classic Bordeaux varieties. His long-standing relationships with local growers ensure a consistency in the quality of the grapes grown in premier Napa sub-appellations for Oberon.

Tasting notes
This is a blockbuster Napa Cabernet with a kiss of Petite Verdot and a dash of Zinfandel to help create Oberon’s deep colors, supple silky tannins, and notes of vibrant black cherry, candied blackberry and spices. A hint of coffee and dark chocolate create a lingering and delightful finish. Pair this with BBQ, Burgers you your favorite cut of beef.

Vineyard
To create Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon, Tony sourced grapes from throughout Napa’s finest winegrowing regions, including Oakville, Oak Knoll, Yountville, Chiles Valley and Capell Valley. By layering fruit from Napa’s 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.

Vinification
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 wine’s flavors and tannins. During blending, Tony looks to other complimentary varieties to help express Oberon Cabernet’s lovely flavor and texture. With a kiss of Syrah, a dash of Merlot he helped to create Oberon’s 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.
