Growing Conditions

The Oberon Sauvignon Blanc is distinctive in style because its fruit is sourced from both our warmer Oso Vineyard, located in northeastern Napa Valley, and the cooler Milliken Vineyard 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 and length to the mouth- feel,” says winemaker Tony Coltrin. The 2015 vintage includes 11.0 percent of Sauvignon Musqué clone grown in the Oso Vineyard, which adds another layer of richness and expressive aromatics to the blend.
