96 The Tasting Panel
This recently released vintage came from an early harvest with lighter yields. Made with estate fruit from Groth's 27.78-acre Reserve Block, the Cab aged 22 months in barrel & 14 months in bottle before it was released this past October. Perfumed red peony & roses along with tilled soil generate a garden party on the nose. Structured & mighty, dusty cocoa & ripe plum lead to a sweetly spicy mid-palate of sage & cedar. It's reminiscent of a Grand Cru Bordeaux, albeit with some extra sunshine.

This shows real interest on the nose with fresh blackcurrants, ivy, tea leaf, vanilla, cloves & peppermint. Freshness comes through aplenty on the palate, which is full-bodied with structured if chewy tannins, some pretty acidity & a driven finish. Blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot. Drink in 2020.

Blended with 15% Merlot, this has a classic character of Old World savoriness, opening in a burst of cassis before becoming more well defined in cedar, clove & crayon wax. The firm tannins never distract, instead supporting a core of full-bodied roundness & plush texture.
"The 2015 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." - Winery
