Q&A With the Winemaker
Q: Premiere Napa Valley wines are innovative and allow each winery to showcase the region's sense of exploration in fine winemaking. What kind of exploration did your Premiere Napa Valley wine allow you to do?
A: Normally Groth Cabernets are blended with Merlot, with this being 100% Cabernet it allows us to experiment with the single varietal. All of this Cabernet was harvested from a single block within the Groth Oakville Estate, referred to as the Reserve Vineyard
Q: What was your inspiration for this offering?
A: I wanted to make a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 100% from the Reserve Vineyard.
Q: Fill in the blanks: I chose to make this wine from this particular ______________ because ______________.
A: I chose to make this wine from this particular Cabernet Sauvignon block because because this is the historical vineyard that our best wine, the Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, comes from.
Q: Why should a wine lover have a bottle of this wine in their cellar?
A: A unique opportunity to compare this wine with the Groth Reserve Cabernet's dating back to it's first vintage, 1983.
