Cabernet Sauvignon

10 cases produced


  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

The sweetest spot for Cabernet Sauvignon is a small three-acre block in our 28-acre Oakville Estate Reserve vineyard. This is the original source for the Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, first produced in 1983. Cameron Parry, Director of Winegrowing, selected this lot of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon for its depth, complexity and balance - hallmarks of the Groth Reserve vineyard. Aged 22 months in a new Boutes French oak barrel, this wine is a showcase of Groth’s signature velvet tannin structure.

-fluent in Spanish.
-Served as a Board member of the Napa Valley Wine Technical Group and serves on the Enology Grants Review Committee for the American Vineyard Foundation.

Winemaking Philosophy:
The real work is in the vineyard itself, to grow the very best fruit possible, and not screw it up in the winery. If you need to find me it's best to start searching in Groth's 121 acre Oakville Estate Vineyard, or their 44 acre Hillview Vineyard in Yountville.
