Groth Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2018


From a vintage James Molesworth of Wine Spectator has called “a new benchmark for Napa Cabernet,” our flagship Cabernet Sauvignon represents the finest lots from the Reserve Vineyard, a 28-acre band on the Groth family’s Oakville Estate. This site’s unique soil profile and ideal climate combine to provide the ultimate expression of Oakville — elegant and age-worthy wines from one of the world’s most remarkable Cabernet-growing regions, resulting in our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting notes:

Purple-ruby in color, this wine is dark and rich even to the eye. A plethora of aromatics greet you from the glass, beginning with blueberry and black currant, and leading to cinnamon, mocha, lavender and clove. The final aromatics to reveal themselves are cigar box and wet gravel. When tasting the wine, the first impression is the fine tannin and balanced acid, which then leads to boysenberry, blackberry and ripe plum skin. The finish is seamless and smooth — the hallmark of a Groth Reserve Cabernet.
