Wine Maker

Tony Coltrin was born and raised in St. Helena, Napa Valley and have spent over 40 years making wine from some of the best Napa Valley vineyards. As a teenager, the grandfather of one of his closest friends suggested that Tony work a harvest at a winery to connect his knowledge of the vineyards with his growing love for wine and food. After that first harvest, Tony was hooked. Tony's love and knowledge of winemaking in the Napa Valley have helped in sourcing grapes of the highest quality to best express the vineyards here. Making Oberon wines allows him to embrace that joy of Napa Valley winemaking and, with the Michael Mondavi Family, produce wines that reflect the heart and soul of who we are and Napa's premier and emerging appellations. Being a winemaker is not something Does does every day; being a winemaker is who Tony is every day.

Oberon Napa Valley Merlot

To naturally soften tannins and enhance varietal complexity, the wine was given an extended maceration then pressed and transferred into French oak barrels (45% new) to undergo a long MLF for roundness and depth. Blending in the Syrah added interesting nuances to the lush berry flavor profile of the Merlot. Dense black fruit aromas are followed by blueberry and chocolate flavors, and supple tannins on the palate.     ■ Grape Variety Merlot 85.5%, Syrah 13.2%, Other varieties 1.3%
