    Item no. 90892

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Blend: 98.33% Cabernet Sauvignon, .64% Cabernet Franc, .53% Merlot, .48% Syrah

    Oberon sourced grapes throughout the Napa Valley appellation to accomplish the desired layering of flavors in their Cabernet Sauvignon. Blending fruit from classic and emerging appellations, including Rutherford, Oakville, Stags Leap, Atlas Peak and Wooden Valley, allowed them to take advantage of both the volcanic hillside soils and the deeper alluvial soils of the Valley floor. With the diversity of flavors, they were able to create a well-rounded mouthful of wine.

    After hand-harvesting, gently de-stemming and crushing, and fermenting in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, the wonderful maturity of tannins in the grapes allowed an opportunity to extend the post fermentation maceration time (skin contact) to 22.6 days on average. Extended juice to skin contact marries flavor and structure in the Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon giving the wine a seamless feel. Malolactic fermentation, in barrel, combined with 18 months aging in French oak barrels concentrates the flavors and adds nuances of vanilla and toffee.

    I remember when Behringer released their Knights Valley reserve. It was under $20/bottle and was just incredible. The Oberon is just lushious.

    Originally had it at Flemings and it was excellent with the beef. Have enjoyed it at home with lamb and pork and it is an great compliment to both. A great value.
