" 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. The fruits veer toward blackberries, cherries and cola, and the tannins are soft and refined. One hundred percent new French oak isn’t at all heavy, lending nuances of buttered toast and sweet wood tannins. Will easily age for 15 years. " ~ SH
"This is the fourth vintage from our historic Reserve vineyard after a replanting of the vineyards took us out of production for five vintages. The new rootstock, clones, trellising system and vine row orientation have proven to be the perfect combination of variables for the Groth Reserve Cabernet. Location is the paramount factor providing the perfect blend of diurnal temperatures, rainfall amounts and soil profiles for our winegrowing endeavors." ~Winery Notes
