As a third-generation winemaker and Napa Valley native, Rob Mondavi, Jr. has always understood that the region is uniquely suited for growing classic Bordeaux varieties. With the Oberon label - originally named for the eponymous king in Shakespeare's winsome comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream - he has created high-quality Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc to be enjoyed every day. Rob and fellow winemaker, Tony Coltrin, select Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc grapes from some of Napa Valley's finest vineyards in Oakville, Rutherford, Stags Leap and other emerging sub-appellations. The climate of these regions - warm days and cool evenings - yields grapes with the perfect balance of ripe fruit flavors and natural acidity. Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, with deep, rich color and concentrated black fruit character. Oberon Merlot is wonderfully complex, with notes of blueberry and chocolate - perfect for enjoying around the hearth on cozy winter evenings. Oberon Sauvignon Blanc, with its balance of fruit and acidity, is a crisp complement to creamy cheeses and fresh fruit - we hope you will join us and Experience Napa Valley In Every Bottle©.

Bright and sweet red fruit flavors, shooting through from the nose to the finish. It's a bit on the sweet side for a dry wine, full of cherries. Not my thing but it's definitely some people's thing.

Juicy jammy berry fruit with some rustic characteristics. Really delicious with a big steak dinner. Very smooth and yummy

A bouquet of rich berries attacks the nose with a spicy undertone of cherry pit...almost jolly rancher like but very pleasant in the mouth with an explosions of bright fruit and balanced tannins.

Good, but a little on the European style if I dare say it. This opened with a very earthy smell and taste to some extent. Not very indicitave of a Napa Cabernet. All in all it was a good wine. I'm going to decant the next 2009 for a few hours after I open it. Cheers!

How can you go wrong with one? From the Micheal Mondavi Family, Oberon is the work of fourth generation winemaker, Robert Mondavi Jr. in cooperation with Napa Valley veteran winemaker Tony Coltrin. Grapes come from Rutherford, Oak Knoll, Wooden Valley and their own Oso Vineyard in Pope Valley. The blend is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petite Sirah, 4% Merlot, 3% Syrah and 3% Petit Verdot all aged up to 18 months in 47% new French oak. There's an ultra-ripe fruit character that makes the wine remarkable forward and lush. Wine Enthusiast Magazine picked it recently as a Best Napa Cab Under $30 with a 91 point score. They said "This release represents a gigantic leap forward for Oberon in their basic Cabernet Sauvignon. Past releases have been so-so. This one’s terrific. Blended from vineyards all over the valley, it shows all the hallmarks of a Napa Cab you want. It’s dry, full-bodied and impressively ripe in blackberries, currants, licorice and oak, with a long, smooth finish."
