Oakville Neighbors Series: 2019 Game Trail Cabernet

Winery Exclusive

8 barrels produced

Launched with the 2019 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 expressive single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon radiates captivating aromas of violet, white pepper and Bing cherry from the glass. On the mouth-filling palate, fine chalky tannins frame focused flavors of ripe black fruit with a savory herb underpinning. The finish is smooth and lingering with a dusty cherry/cocoa echo. — Director of Winegrowing Ted Henry

Wine Specs

Varietal Composition
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
50% new French oak
18 months in barrel
Oakville, Napa Valley


This single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon comprises select blocks from the Vyborny family’s vineyard in the prestigious southeast corner of the Oakville AVA along Silverado Trail, 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.


This wine’s savory herbal notes and fine tannin make it a versatile Cabernet for food pairing. It’s an excellent match with herb-roasted lamb chops or grilled portobello mushrooms with feta.
