Oberon Merlot 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Blending in the Syrah added interesting nuances to the lush berry flavor profile of the Merlot. Dense black fruit aromas are followed by blueberry and chocolate flavors, and supple tannins on the palate.

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©. Oberon Wines are represented by Folio Fine Wine Partners, Napa Valley. For more information about Folio wines go to www.foliowine.com Read less

Interesting....The Syrah does indeed add some spice to this Merlot. It's very different and quite a bit tannic on the finish. I didn't love it, but it was decent. For the money, the 2005 Oberon Merlot was the best Oberon Merlot I've ever had. Grab one if you can find it. It's wonderful!
