Shows bight natural acidity and fresh flavors with underlying richness and complexity that balances the wine and adds fullness to the mouth-feel. The 2012 vintage includes a large percentage of Sauvignon Musque clone grown in the Oso Vineyard, which adds another layer of richness and expressive aromatics to the blend, starting with citrus notes with underlying pineapple and developing into orange blossom.

Production


Vinification

Tony Coltrin set out to maximize fruit expression in our Oberon Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley. "We used both cold tank fermentation and barrel fermentation to maximize the overall fruit expression. The cold-fermentation in tank helps us maintain the pureness of fruit and aromatics, and barrel fermentation adds a subtle creaminess and length."
