Oakville Neighbors Series: 2019 Game Trail Cabernet

Groth
Winery Exclusive

200 cases produced

Launched with the 2018 vintage, Groth’s Oakville Neighbors Series explores the diversity of Oakville Cabernet through single-vineyard grower lots that stand on their own as a distinct expression of the appellation.

The Groth family, along with retired Winemaker Emeritus Michael Weis, has worked with Alex Vyborny, whose family owns the vineyard from which the Game Trail Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced, for 32 years. Alex is a well-known and beloved vineyard manager who has been here since 1973, overseeing many of Napa Valley and Sonoma County’s most prestigious vineyards. He is a farmer through and through, as down to earth as they come and a terrific partner whose handshake is as good as gold. He farms his family’s Oakville vineyard with his son, Ben.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon has generous aromatics of violets, white pepper and Bing cherry. At first sip, the fine chalky tannin is very pleasant while the flavors of black fruit and savory herbs linger for a considerable amount of time. This bottling exemplifies the Game Trail profile.

Vineyard

The Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine is from the Vyborny family’s vineyard in the southeast corner of the Oakville AVA along the Silverado Trail, directly across from the Rector Reservoir Dam below the Vaca mountains. In fact, rocks from this property were used to build the dam, which tells you something about the vineyard’s soil composition. This is a prized area of Oakville, with prestigious neighbors and crumbly, red iron soils sloughed off the Vaca range.

Pairing

This wine’s savory herbal notes and fine tannin make it a versatile Cabernet for food pairing. It would be a perfect match for roast turkey with herb stuffing and the other traditional accompaniments.
