Oberon Sauvignon Blanc 2016
The Oberon Sauvignon Blanc is distinctive in style because its fruit is sourced from both our warmer Oso Vineyard (46%), located in northeastern Napa Valley, and the cooler Milliken Vineyard (54%) in the southern part of the valley. "With each vintage, we want Oberon Sauvignon Blanc to show bright natural acidity and fresh flavors. We also want an underlying richness and complexity that balances the wine and adds fullness to the mouth-feel" says winemaker Tony Coltrin. The 2014 vintage includes a large percentage of Sauvignon Musqué clone grown in the Oso Vineyard, which adds another layer of richness and expressive aromatics to the blend, starting with citrus and passion fruit notes, tart kiwi, and developing into orange blossom.
