Groth Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Wine 2010

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Dense with rich gripping tannins this is slow to unfold but as it does it reveals a well-structured mix of dried dark berry roasted herb espresso and mocha. Gains depth and chewy tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2028.

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 10-15 years. Jeff Loo.

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.

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. 1 750 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator.

Complex if on the herbal side with coffee tea currant and olive flavors that are focused. Finishes with firm chewy tannins but overall good balance. Drink now through 2008. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 1 298 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator.
