Groth Vineyards & Winery

Sweet Spot

Cabernet Sauvignon
Oakville

10 cases produced

Highlights

  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon (by contrast, Groth’s Reserve and Oakville Cabernets are always blended with Merlot)
  • Clone 7 is the original clone planted to our vineyards
  • Vineyards were originally developed by Justin Meyer
  • From a unique part of our vineyard with well-drained gravel and loam soils

Cabernet Sauvignon chosen from the sweetest spot in our Oakville estate, Block 8 of our Reserve Vineyard, a 13 acre parcel next to Conn Creek. The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 7 was harvested from the morning side of the vines and aged 22 months in new Sylvain, French oak barrel, medium toast. This wine is a showcase of Groth’s signature velvet tannin structure.
