Oberon Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Oberon, Napa Valley, Sauvignon Blanc 2009 This wine is the essence of grapefruit, from the aroma to the flavors in the mouth. The acidity is crisp, making this wine quite zippy and refreshing.

The grapes are all Sauvignon Blanc and are sourced from the Oso Vineyard in the warmer Pope Valley and the Milliken Vineyard in the cooler, southern stretch of the Napa Valley. In the winery there is a combination of stainless and barrel fermentation and the wine is bottled under a screwcap closure.

Winemaker Tony Coltrin. Produced and bottled by Oberon Wines, part of the Michael Mondavi Family of Wines in Napa 13.5% $14.99 suggested US retail, a media sample Oberon Wines
