GROTH Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
(Oakville, Napa Valley, CA) $150
Groth’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a small rocky section of the Groth estate in the heart of Oakville. Once part of a large alluvial fan that flowed out of the Vaca mountains, this block of vines is famous for giving rise to the first California wine (the 1985 Reserve) ever awarded 100 points by the wine critic Robert Parker. The Groth Reserves are intensely structured, dense, concentrated, and somewhat closed when young, but in my experience, take on polish and expressiveness after ten years of aging.
