Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The dense deep purple color hints at the intensity in this wine. Aromas of sweet vanilla and pie spice layered over black cherries dominate the nose, accompanied by cassis, red plum and a savory touch of sarsaparilla root. The round, rich entry builds quickly to a full structured mouthfeel with consistent acidity. There is a clean, elegant progression of ripe black cherry, black currant, and juicy dark plum, finishing with clove and vanilla, a hint of marzipan and a trickle of cherry juice. The big structure of this wine should have it drinking well into 2040 or beyond.

Accolades

"This is really beautiful with raspberry, blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors. Shows lots of finesse and polish in the texture."

Vineyard

This wine represents the finest lots from the Reserve Vineyard on 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

A well-marbled rib-eye simply seasoned and grilled over a wood fire should be a near-perfect companion for this big red wine. If meat isn’t for you, this wine will also pair beautifully with a rich wild mushroom risotto.
