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©.

A good Bordeaux style cab. If you like French wines you will like this. If you like fruit forward cabs you will prefer another.

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.

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.

Dunkles Granat-Rubin. Brombeeren, Heidelbeergelée und Amarena in der fruchtig, zart rauchigen Nase, auch eingelegte Zwetschgen und Milchkaffee dahinter. Fruchtbetonter Gaumen mit eleganter Textur und Extraktsüsse, reife Tannine und wieder viel Brombeeren und schwarze Kirschen, faszinierende Napa-Würze und Früchtetee bis ins sanft nachklingende Finale.

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.

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.

Napa Valleys 2007 grape growing season was lengthy, with low yields, but extremely high quality. Bud break occurred earlier than usual following a dry Winter and warm, dry Spring, but fruit set was inconsistent and left small berries in loose clusters. Cool weather in early Summer slowed ripening. In late August, the heat returned, but then unseasonably cool, foggy days chilled the second week of September, causing producers to leave grapes on the vine a little longer. A second heat wave at the end of September quickly finished up ripening the fruit. Although the growing season began early, the periods of cooler weather slowed maturation and caused harvest to conclude at a normal date, giving the grapes extra time on the vine. The small berries that were typical of the 2007 season developed intense varietal flavors and great concentration.
