Editorial Reviews for Groth Cabernet Sauvignon
Big aromas of tobacco leaf, cigar box and subtle baking spice greet the nose along with crushed berry fruit and hints of African violet and sour plum. Soft and a touch sweet on entry, this has lovely flavors of herb tinged blackberry fruit but the late arriving acids seem a bit too aggressive, lending freshness but creating a bit of a discordant feeling with the richness and tannic heft of the wine. Chewy, dull and short in the mouth, this is just tough. 88pt

There’s a lot of rich, ripe blackberry, blueberry, black currant and cassis flavor in this Cabernet, but it’s still finding its balance. The fruit is primary in nature with strong tannins and oak that’s not yet integrated. The wine lacks subtlety now, but on the other hand, it doesn’t seem to have a long life ahead, so give it 3–4 years and drink with steak.
Bright, medium ruby-red. Black cherry, herbs, tobacco leaf and loam on the nose, sweetened by chocolatey oak. Juicy and firmly built, showing good clarity and brisk acidity but with an obviously herbal component to the black cherry and currant fruit. Finishes with serious but essentially fine-grained tannins and a lingering green element. Will this very primary young wine gain in complexity with time in bottle?
The 2010 harvest may actually go down as one of the most intriguing, most difficult and the best vintages of the early 21st century. The reds are stunning amazing colors in wines that are soft, supple and full bodied.
