2021 Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville


The 40th vintage of our Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is a tribute to Groth’s co-founder, Judith Mae Groth. Judy’s influence on the style of Groth wines, the design of our winery and labels, our approach to hospitality and our exacting code of conduct cannot be overestimated. From the very beginning, Judy rightfully considered her role in establishing Groth Vineyards & Winery to be her most important professional achievement.

As the standard bearer of Groth Vineyards & Winery for 40 years, Judy was the very essence of beauty, grace and elegance, traits that are consistently reflected in our wines.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

This deep and dense garnet-hued wine opens with macerated blackberry aromas intertwined with freshly baked graham cracker crust. Layers of complexity unfold with the addition of cocoa nibs, hibiscus tea, hints of poppy seed and an underlying presence of graphite, adding depth and sophistication. On the palate, bright and refreshing notes of sour cherry and juicy raspberry take center stage, accompanied by the depth of black currant. The inclusion of rhubarb introduces a subtle tartness that complements the sweetness of the fruit and paprika notes add a nuanced spiciness to the overall character. The tannins, initially robust, gradually melt away, leaving behind a velvety texture and finish. — Director of Winegrowing Ted Henry

The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is grown on our Estate vineyards and those of several partner growers all within the Oakville AVA — in the heart of the Napa Valley. The fruit is night-harvested, cluster sorted by hand, crushed, then fermented at our Oakville Estate winery. Coming from a diverse selection of vineyards, this wine showcases the complexity and diversity within this compact AVA.


The wine’s complex aromatics and lively acidity make it an excellent food companion, perfect with roasted herb-coated meats, grilled portobellos, or a rich Bolognese.
