Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon Hrzn 2008
Oberon Wines are an exceptional blend of Napa Valley grapes selected by our winemakers for their concentration of ripe fruit flavors and natural acidity; a perfect balance achieved through Napa's hot days and cool evenings. Oberon's lush dark berry flavors are complemented by oak barrel aging and a distinctive tannin structure that is the hallmark of Napa Valley.
Much better than the 2006 or 2007. Nice structure and balance. A tad dry on the finish. Give it air and it softens nicely. A very good Cab for the price. Cheers!
This is one of my all time favorite wines! Rich berry and lots of cassis. Try it today!

Rob Mondavi, Jr. and fellow winemaker Tony Coltrin select Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from some of Napa Valley's finest vineyards in Oakville, Rutherford and Stags Leap. The climate of these regions yields grapes with the perfect balance of ripe fruit flavors and natural acidity. Rich and dark, this wine has all the finesse you could look for in a Napa Valley Cabernet! Serve with a juicy grilled steak served with crumbled gorgonzola cheese.

Formerly available only in restaurants, this Napa Cabernet is made by Michael Mondavi, with most of the fruit coming from the Stags Leap District. It shows rich, spicy cassis notes and a velvety finish. This is just the thing for grilled meats and roasts.
Lush, velvety flavors of blackberry, mocha and oak spices are framed in the muscular tannins that give Napa Valley Cabs their reputation for both power and elegance.
Terrific Napa Cab from a textbook vintage. Hearty and robust, with firm tannins and lovely black currant, anise and vanilla notes. Great structure, indicitive of long aging potential, but drinks beautifully now as well. Recommended pairings include hard cheeses, braised pork or prime rib.
