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 13 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 Zinfandel 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.
