Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The density of the deep-garnet color hints at the extraction in this wine. Aromas of spiced cherries dominate the alluring nose, accompanied by cassis, dark plum, and a savory touch of anise. Smooth and juicy on the entry, the palate builds quickly with full mouthfeel and bright acidity. There is a clean elegant progression of lush plum, bright cherry, tart red currant all riding on abundant but not overpowering tannin. The spiced cherries make a reappearance late in the finish. Sit with this one for a while, get to know it, and enjoy the evolution. Elegantly powerful now, this will be a real stunner in 10-15 years.

Accolades

"Thoroughly gorgeous, with a super suave display of cassis, plum and cherry preserve flavors infused with alder, sanguine, savory and rooibos tea accents."

Vineyard

This wine represents the finest lots from the Reserve Vineyard of the Groth family’s Oakville Estate. The vineyard is a nearly 28-acre band with a disproportionately high amount of chert, a hard and compact sedimentary rock comprising quartz crystals and fossils. The site’s unique soil profile and ideal climate combine to produce the ultimate expression of Oakville — elegant and age-worthy wines from one of the world’s top Cabernet appellations. The vineyard is sustainably farmed and became Napa Green/Fish Friendly Farming certified in 2014.

Pairing

It’s hard to go wrong with a classic pairing like a New York steak, but roasted lamb or duck, or a vegetarian cassoulet also pair beautifully with this wine.
