    Winemaker 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.

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.
