Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

A subdued nose, with great dark color. On the mouth it opens with a easy going dark fruit with cranberries and some chocolate. Not as big in the fruit department as I usually like, but a good mouthfeel and elegance that makes me forget the shortcoming and more than makes up for it. Great balance of acidity and tannins that mesh nicely into a decent finish. At $16.99 this is a great QPR. I have read different things about this wine. My own conclusion is that it's Mondavi Napa fruit that is nothing like the Mondavi Napa bottling, I guess vinified differently as mentioned elsewhere. My vote goes to the Oberon over the Mondavi Napa (which I liked in 2001). A definate 'BUY' that I could easily call my house red. (until my next red house red comes along next week :smile: )
