    Winemaker's Notes:

    To naturally soften tannins and enhance varietal complexity, we gave the wine 28 days of skin contact. We then pressed the wine and transferred it to French oak barrels to undergo a long malolactic fermentation for roundness and depth. Blending in the Cabernet Sauvignon added interesting nuances to the lush berry flavor profile of the Merlot. Oberon Merlot is ripe with blueberries and chocolate. Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon is velvety with blackberry and dark plum flavors.

    The 2006 Merlot is a blend of 95.2% Merlot and 4.8% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

    One of the best if not the best Merlots that I have had the pleasure of tasting. I have never experienced an explosion on the palate by a Merlot like this one. Wonderfully balanced, complex, and smooth best describes the Merlot. Highly recommended for a good price! A+!
