Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Beautiful currant black berry flavors are layered with tobacco smoke and fresh leather aromas with a refined structured body."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." –JL, Wine Spectator (92 Points)

External Reviews for Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
If you don’t cellar this Cab, you’ll miss out on what it has to offer. It is a dry, deeply flavored, superbly structured wine, rich in tannins, with brooding depths of flavors ranging from black currants, cassis and licorice to hints of dried herbs and sweet, toasty cedar wood. The alcohol is on the high side, in the modern Napa style, but the wine wears its heat well. Start drinking it after 2018.
On the cool side of classical, this wine presents the cedar and dill scents of a lean cabernet, as well as the gravelly texture of the tannins that makes the variety so expressive. It shifts moods as it develops with air, first youthfully green, then warmer with purple fruit and tree bark-like spice. Overall tight and restrained, this will evolve well over the next several years. It grows at Groth’s Reserve block, 27 acres of cabernet on the Oakville Crossroads, replanted in 1999 and 2001.
Bright medium ruby. Tight, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice, minerals and musky tobacco. Densely packed and deep, offering compelling creamy sweetness to its flavors of black fruits, licorice and cocoa powder. This tactile, seriously concentrated wine really saturates the mouth on the back end, finishing with broad tannins, plenty of sweet oak and excellent persistence. Carries its 14.9% alcohol gracefully.
