GROTH CABERNET RESERVE 2014

Home   WINE   DOMESTIC REDS


All of the Cabernet Sauvignon is from our 27.78 acre Reserve Block here at the Estate. Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon clusters are night harvested, allowing the fruit to remain cool. The must is then cold soaked for up to five days. After fermentation is complete, barrel aging takes place in our dedicated, dual-level Reserve barrel rooms. The wine is racked barrel to barrel and aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, followed by over a year of bottle-aging. The 2014 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows the intrinsic black stone fruit nuances and the elegant tannin structure that define our Oakville, Napa Valley-floor Cabernet.

Muted at first, this reserve wine shows a deft hand. A red currant tone is met by a mild grip of tannins and a soft midpalate that is lightly rich in coconut shavings and mocha. Supple and balanced in richness, it offers classic flavors of cassis and cherry wrapped in supportive oak.

Aromas of dark berry, fresh-cut herbs, cedary oak and gravelly earth are tight and well-centered. Still raw and edgy, but nothing a year or two won't resolve. Patience required. Best from 2020 through 2033.
