Oberon Invites You to Take a Wine Break!


oberon wine review
With all that I have on my schedule, I truly enjoy an evening with my best friends, simply hanging out. Okay, hanging out with wine. It’s our way to take a “Wine Break” that may include a little bit of additional whine! Just released from Oberon Wines, a 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon and 2013 Sauvignon Blanc. It’s the perfect wine to share with friends or that special someone, or simply enjoying after the kiddies are tucked in bed.

Oberon wine

The 2012 Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon has a suggested retail price of $25 per bottle. It’s made from grapes procured in Napa’s finest winegrowing regions, including Rutherford, Oakville, Oak Knoll, Wooden Valley, and Oso Vineyard at the northeastern end of Napa Valley. By layering fruit from Napa’s volcanic hillside soils and the deeper alluvial soils of the valley floor, the wine boasts a beautifully rounded, rich, complex flavor.

Tasting Notes: Vibrant red cherry, candied blackberry, licorice and spice flavors, with an added hint of cocoa powder and toffee. Extended fermentation yields bold flavors, tannins and seamless texture.

I love this wine! It’s absolutely delicious and to be quite frank with you, the bottle went down all too quickly! The Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon pairs nicely with a simply seasoned grilled steak, BBQ ribs and robust, hard cheeses

The 2013 Oberon Sauvignon Blanc has a suggested retail price of $18 per bottle. It boasts distinctive in style because the fruit is sourced from both the warmer Oso Vineyard (46%), located in northeastern Napa Valley, and the cooler Milliken Vineyard (54%) in the southern part of the valley. The cold-fermentation in tanks creates pureness of fruit and aromatics, with a subtle creaminess and length.

Tasting Notes: Lemongrass and tart apple with a layer of richness and expressive aromatics. Fresh flavors with citrus notes and underlying pineapple that develops into orange blossom.

This wine is equally delicious! It’s light in taste with a fruity undertone.   The Sauvignon Blanc is best paired with Shrimp, crab cakes or a variety of cheese with fresh fruit.
