2016 GROTH RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Groth’s Reserve Cabernet represents the finest lots within the winery’s Reserve Block located on the coveted Northeastern side of Oakville. The area flanks paragons Plumpjack, O’Shaughnessy, and Bonny’s Vineyard, and is just a stones-throw from BOND’s St Eden. Their vineyard has a high concentration of compact sedimentary rock comprised of quartz crystals and fossils. When combined with an ideal climate, it produces a world-class Cabernet, which has been proven by eight features on the Wine Spectator Top 100 list, including this wine, which ranked #4 in 2019.
Groth’s vineyard is ideally located and meticulously farmed. Their team performs cluster thinning three times each vintage, and during harvest, they sort the fruit three times, assuring only the best berries make it through to their small lot fermentation tanks.
Groth divided their Reserve Blocks into eight separate lots, and of those, only the five best made it into their 2016 Reserve Cabernet. The 2016 release stayed in barrel for 22 months and now beautifully expresses all of the hallmarks that make Groth Cabernet so revered, with massive extract, a profoundly concentrated core, and notable delineation.
