2019 Oakcross Proprietary Red, Oakville

Winery Exclusive

Introduced with the 2018 vintage, Oakcross Proprietary Red represents our family’s continued focus on exploring the potential of our Oakville Estate and the broader Oakville AVA. The name — shorthand for Oakville Cross Road and the moniker given to our property when it was originally planted — symbolizes both the central position of our estate and the corridor that connects Groth to the distinguished Oakville grower partners who also contribute to this superior Napa Valley red blend. Each vintage, the blend for this wine is guided by the conditions of the growing season and our winemakers’ intuition.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The 2019 Oakcross Proprietary Red presents itself with an intense, dark ruby color. It opens with scents of red plum, perfume and aromatic floral notes of violet, along with hints of pomegranate, persimmon and vanilla cream. The mouthfeel is plush, soft and balanced, with perfectly resolved tannins and flavors of tart plum skin and rich, dark berries.


“A plush, medium to full-bodied, juicy, almost racy red that offers impressive blueberry and macerated cherry-like fruit mixed with plenty of spice and chocolate notes. … A terrific blend.”

For 2019, the Cabernet Sauvignon came from the Reserve blocks of our Oakville Estate. The Merlot is from our Hillview Estate Vineyard, with additional Merlot and Petit Verdot sourced from distinguished grower partners.


Delicious with a grilled steak, this wine is also superb with barbecue or slow cooked heirloom beans with a dash of bacon. Lamb kofta also makes for a winning pairing.
