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©.

Very smooth nap cab, let it breath for 30 minutes or so. This wine will only get better with time.

A little sharp at first and then mellows out in the mouth. Tastes like black cherry and oak. Had this at Beach Cafe on 2nd Ave with Justine.

This Napa Cabernet is made by Michael Mondavi, with most of the fruit coming from the Stags Leap District. Formerly only available in restaurants, it shows rich, spicy cassis notes and a velvet finish; this is just the thing for grilled meats and roasts.
