GROTH OAKVILLE CABERNET 2015 NAPA VALLEY
The Estate sits on the Northeastern side of the appellation, flanked by paragons Plumpjack, O’Shaughnessy, and Bonny’s Vineyard, and is just a stones-throw from BOND’s St Eden vineyard. Their Oakville Cab includes both Estate fruit and grapes from partner growers in the region with similar flavor characteristics.
Pressed in their state-of-the-art gravity-flow winery, and kept for nearly two years in barrel, Groth’s Oakville Cabernet has evolved beautifully in the bottle over the last three years. The 2015 release has incredible detail and complexity, with a broad presence on the palate and excellent depth.

Tasting Notes From Decanter, “Deep, concentrated nose bursting with ripe black fruit concentration and herbal undertones. Fresh fruit palate, with a touch of oak spice and violets.” DECANTER 93 POINTS
Tasting Notes From James Suckling, “This shows real interest on the nose with fresh blackcurrants, ivy, tea leaf, vanilla, cloves and peppermint. Freshness comes through aplenty on the palate, which is full-bodied with structured if chewy tannins, some pretty acidity and a driven finish. Blend of 85% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot. Drink in 2020.” JAME SUCKLING 92 POINTS
Tasting Notes from Winery, “Aromas of cassis, ripe red cane berries, and warm vanilla beans, along with a hint of cedar draw you in, inviting that first sip. The palate entry is full and lush with juicy black plum, red currant, and a hint of dried cherries. The abundant fine-grained tannins give a full mouthfeel that is complimented by sweet vanilla notes mid-palate, and a bright acidity throughout. Leading into a warm, spicy, and persistent finish.”
