Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 94ptsws 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley94ptsWS"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." -JLwinery notes: The 2005 vintage marks the return of Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon after a six vintage hiatus. For sixteen vintages the vines from Block 1, at our Oakville "home" vineyard, produced grapes that made exquisite and memorable Reserve wines between 1983 and 1999. The Reserve block was pulled out and replanted in 2000 with new rootstocks, new clones, new trellising system and a new vine row orientation. The result of this huge investment in time, energy and resources can be tasted in our 2005 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.The wine was aged for 24 months, in 100% new French oak barrels and blended with 14% Merlot from our Oakville Estate vineyard. The 2005 Reserve Cabernet shows the intrinsic black stone fruit nuances and the soft tannin structure of Oakville, Napa Valley-floor Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a California Wine
