"Groths Reserve Block runs north from Oakville Cross Road along the eastern bank of Conn Creek, just under 28 acres replanted in 1999 and 2001. The vines produced a bold, luscious beauty in 2015, defining Oakville in its rich dimensions, held in check by proper harmonies in the tannins (think Presbyterian church music, clear and resolute). The fresh fruit flavors of blueberries and plums have exceptional length, ample and energized, while the warmth of the wine begins to show after several days open. Lovely to drink on release, this should develop well over the next several years."
Tasting Panel 93
"Smooth and creamy with luscious, tangy style, this is a long, linear wine with subtle elegance and fnesse from a family-owned and -operated winery."
Wine Enthusiast 93
"Plum, clove and tobacco mark this distinct reserve-worthy red, made from the producers own estate-reserve block. Inviting floral aromatics entice equally, underlining its understated elegance and class. Black licorice lines thick, grippy tannin and oak, suggesting ample time for cellaring."
