Groth Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve 2013

Member Review by Matt Walker:

Quite good with supreme intensity, pure fruit and good structure. Touches of minerals on the finish. A good wine at no mistake but I'm not ready to nice its worth the hefty price tag.

Very nice, elegant bottle. Needs a bit to open up but very nice notes of fresh cherry and blackberry. The structure of this bottle is silky smooth.

Dark fruit and sage with notes of mineral and currant....Supple tannins feed a long, structured finish. Enjoyed with herb braised lamb. Outstanding!

This is among our favorite cabs. We discovered it when a restaurant didn't have the wine we ordered, and the sommelier suggested this. I'm glad he did - this became an instant favorite.

An amazing, big-full-fruit Cab.

I loved it. Great nose of dark fruit and chocolate. Long, big finish. I'm running out to get some more for a great occassion. Too expensive to drink everyday, even in this economy (LOL!)

    The 2008 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows the intrinsic black stone fruit nuances and the soft tannin structure that define our Oakville, Napa Valley-floor Cabernet.

    Fabulous aromas of currants, blackberries and flowers. Licorice. Gorgeous to smell. Full-bodied, with racy tannins and smoky, spice and dark chocolate. Fresh and bright with a solid core of fruit. This is clearly better than 2007 for me. Best after 2... James Suckling.

    A huge Cabernet, in the best sense of the word. It wasn't the easiest vintage, as 2007 was, but meticulous winemaking did the job, resulting in this amazingly rich, impressively ripe wine that's drinkable now and will develop for many years.

    Pure, rich and focused, full-bodied and concentrated, showing firm black cherry and blackberry fruit, with black olive, sage, dusty earth and mineral hints. Gains depth and complexity, with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2010 through 2017. 1,500 cases made. -JL ** Arriving October 2009 **

    All of the Cabernet Sauvignon is from the Reserve block here at the home ranch. In these vineyards, the grapes are pre-veraison cluster thinning followed by two post-veraison cluster thinnings. Once harvested the grape clusters are hand sorted and de-stemmed without crushing. The berries then go through a second sort to make sure only the best goes into the fermenters. A dedicated, gravity-flow, dual-level barrel cellar was built for the Reserve Cabernet. The wine was aged for 24 months, in 100% new French oak barrels and blended with 14% Merlot from our Oakville Estate vineyard. The 2006 Reserve Cabernet shows the intrinsic black stone fruit nuances and the soft tannin structure that define our Oakville, Napa Valley-floor Cabernet. The wine has been bottled as is no fining or filtration needed!
