Oberon Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Shows bright natural acidity and fresh flavors with an underlying richness and complexity that balances the wine and adds fullness to the mouth-feel. The vintage includes a large percentage of Sauvignon Musque clone grown in the Oso Vineyard, which adds another layer of richness and expressive aromatics to the blend, starting with citrus notes with underlying pineapple and developing into orange blossom.

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
