    Winemaker Notes

    Napa Valley's 2001 growing season experienced one of the longest bloom-to harvest periods in recent history. We began crushing the grapes August 8, one of the earliest onsets to harvest in 20 years. Then the weather changes and harvest became one of the longest in duration, with the last grapes picked at the end of October. Flavor maturity lagged behind sugar accumulation so we played a waiting game, delaying harvest until the flavor maturity caught up. We harvested these grapes from mid-September through October. The long hang-time on the vine resulted in rich flavors, exceptional balance and mature tannins in the Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

    Oberon, Napa Valley, California
    2001 Merlot
    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.
