Groth Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Oakville 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Wine Enthusiast: This is a lovely Cabernet to drink now and over the next few years. It shows its Oakville pedigree with smooth tannins and dry, complex flavors of blackberry, black currant and cherry, with a fine earthiness. (12/31/12) 'Highly recommended,' California Grapevine: Medium-dark ruby; attractive, spicy, cassis and black cherry fruit aroma with hints of dill and olive; full body; forward, rich, textured, firmly structured, dark berry fruit flavors; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. 14.5% alcohol; blended with 20% Merlot; released January 2012. (Dec 2012)

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA. - WineryKey Points* Oakville Appellation* Cabernet Sauvignon 80%, Merlot 20%* Aged in French oak barrels for 22 months, 65% new French oak.* Bottled in July 2011* Will age beautifully for the next 10-15 years ** SOLD OUT **

A cool-climate expression of Cabernet, pungent, gamy and herbal, with a loamy earth edge to the dried berry and currant. Gains on the finish. Should be cellared, if briefly, and decanted. Best from 2014 through 2024. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2009 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

The year was 1981. The 121 acre purchase was the Oakville Vineyard planted by Justin Meyer and Ray Duncan from 1972-1974 to Cabernet Sauvignon, in the heart of the Oakville appellation. It was prime Cabernet Sauvignon land, planted by masters.
