Groth Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Wine 2009

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Dark red. Musky redcurrant licorice smoke tobacco mocha and brown spices on the slightly medicinal nose. Supple smooth and ripe but with little easy sweetness to the flavors of redcurrant smoke herbs and menthol. Finishes with firm dusty tannins and very good length. This is carrying nearly 15% alcohol but hardly comes across as modern and overripe. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A dark purple core with ruby tones at the rim. Enticing notes of raspberry currant and cassis mixed with licorice toasted spice and vanilla. The palate is medium to full bodied and shares flavors of cherry black pepper tree bark and cinnamon leading to a mouthful of acidity on the mid palate. There is plenty of structure to back this wine and ample amount of tannins to please even the most robust cabernet drinker. Give this another 2-4 years in bottle and watch it evolve over the next 10-1
