Description | Details | Rating

This Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA. The sweet vanilla character derived from 22 months in the barrels blends well with the black cherry and blackberry flavors and aromas of the wine.

"Remarkably rich and well-made, with a taut, dense core of earthy anise and black licorice notes woven into currant and blackberry elements. Once settled, the flavors expand and lift, imparting a sense of elegance and finesse without losing the tannic backbone. Best from 2020 through 2034. "

"This wine is sourced from a unique block in the heart of the appellation and the producer's 165-acre estate, rich in sedimentary rock fragments of quartz and fossils. It's lush and soft on the palate, with leather, ripe red berry and cassis flavors. The tannins are strong and wrapped tenaciously around the fruit, requiring further time in bottle; drink 2020–2028.

"Groth's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve packs a serious punch. Wild cherry, smoke, tobacco, herbs and cedar are some of the notes that give the wine its distinctive, pungent personality. The tannins need time to soften, so readers should not be in any hurry here. Today, the 2013 Reserve is distinctly burly and powerful in style. It will be interesting to see if a little more finesse develops in the coming years. Rating91(+) Points."
