Good hearty Napa Cab...not too much tannin, not too acidic
One of my favorite cabs. It does need to breathe a good bit now. 2006 is a bit better at the moment but I feel confident the 2007 bottles I have tucked away will mature nicely over the next few years. The previous taste descriptions are accurate.

"The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is grown on our Estate controlled vineyards
A classic Napa Valley cabernet, this grows at Groth’s 21.8 acre Reserve Vineyard on the Oakville Crossroad. It’s a parcel of high ground on the valley floor, the best-draining soil on the estate, replanted in 1999 and 2000. The young vines produced a tightly structured 2007, layering fresh woodland cherry flavors over supple tannins. there’s power in those tannins, expressed in a chipped mineral character as the wine evolves with air. The tension between zest fruit and dark tannins gives this wine its rounded form. For the cellar.
Winemaker notes:"The 2007 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. Patience during bottle aging will reward the "steward" with an outstanding bottle over the next 10 to 15 years."
Tight and concentrated, with a dense, rich, chewy beam of dried currant, mineral, graphite, black cherry and blackberry fruit that’s intense and full-blown, both flexing its muscle while displaying deft balance. Ends with a compact, layered finish. Best from 2012 through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
This has wonderful richness, density and focus, with tiers of smoky plum, currant, blackberry, loamy earth, sage and underbrush notes. Though firmly tannic, there's a measure of finesse and polish. Ends with a long, rich, persistent finish. The best Groth Reserve in years. Best from 2009 through 2015.
Grows on you. Rich and earthy, with complex herb, currant, sage and cedary oak notes, all folding together nicely and finishing in a concentrated aftertaste. Best from 2002 through 2010.
Ripe and forward, with rich, tasty black cherry and red currant flavors that are elegant and vibrant, with refined, even delicate, nuances that give it a supple mouthfeel. Drink now through 2009.
The 2007 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. Aged in French oak barrels for 20 months (50% new). Will age beautifully for the next 10-15 years. Cabernet Sauvignon 80%, Merlot 20%.
