To create Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon, winemaker Tony Coltrin sourced grapes from throughout Napa’s finest winegrowing regions, including Rutherford, Oakville, Yountville, Chiles Valley and Capell Valley. By layering fruit from Napa’s volcanic hillside 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.
During blending, Tony used various red grape varieties to help achieve Oberon Cabernet’s lovely flavor and texture. With a kiss of Petit Verdot, a dash of Merlot and sprinkling of other red varieties helped to create Oberon’s deep colors, supple tannins, and vibrant black cherry, candied blackberry and spices. A hint of coffee and dark chocolate create a lingering and delightful finish.
