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.

Description

2016 GROTH “RESERVE” CABERNET SAUVIGNON

“This delivers a very tightly focused, almost piercing beam of cassis, raspberry coulis and bitter cherry fruit, scored with singed alder and iron notes. Incense and tobacco details chime in on the finish. Long and refined, with the fruit leaving a sweet and mouthwatering echo. Best from 2022 through 2038.”
96 Points, #4 Top 100 2019
“With 9% Merlot in the blend, this wine was given 22 months in 100% new French oak and is built to last. Softly layered in cassis, it shows lifted acidity and graceful, firm tannins. Spicy nutmeg and clove season the fruit, adding length and complexity. Enjoyed 2026-2031.”
94 Points, Cellar Selection
“The density of the deep-garnet color hints at the extraction in this wine. Aromas of spiced cherries dominate the alluring nose, accompanied by cassis, dark plum and a savory touch of anise. Smooth and juicy on the entry, the palate builds quickly with full mouthfeel and bright acidity. There is a clean, elegant progression of lush plum, bright cherry and tart red currant all riding on abundant but not overpowering tannin. The spiced cherries make a reappearance late in the finish. Sit with this one for a while, get to know it, and enjoy the evolution. Elegantly powerful now, this will be a real stunner in 10-15 years.”
