2011 Oberon Cabernet Sauvignon Napa County
Not my favorite Cabernet and at $18.99 the price is a little steep for this guy. It’s a decent wine, assembled from all over Napa “county” in a bad growing year, but it really doesn’t break through the muted dark fruit, black licorice and plum flavors to reveal any real depth or complexity; the wine finishes fast. It feels really constrained all the way through, even after a few hours of air.
I would recommend passing on this bottle for $20 and look for a nice French Cotes du Rhone, or any Spanish wine in the same price range.
