Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
A blend of 96.91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 0.48% Cabernet Franc, 0.34% Petite Verdot, 0.22% Zinfandel and 0.15% Syrah.
After the grapes were gently hand-harvested, de-stemmed and crushed, the juice fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with an extended post-fermentation maceration that beautifully married flavors and tannins, giving our Oberon Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon its lovely, seamless texture. Malolactic fermentation in barrel, combined with 18 months aging in French oak barrels, further concentrated the wine's rich cherry, dark berry and cassis flavors, adding subtle nuances of toasted vanilla and toffee. Enjoy this lovely Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with steak, lamb and duck dishes, as well as flavorful cheeses.
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.
