Winemaker's Notes:

Sourcing half of the grapes from our warmer Oso Vineyard, and the balance from cooler vineyards in the southern part of Napa Valley, combines bright natural acidity with fresh flavors of green apple, tart kiwi, pear and melon.

Enjoy this lovely Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc with grilled white fish, crab cakes and light spicy foods, as well as creamy cheeses.

About Oberon:

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.
