Oakville Neighbors Series: 2020 Highway Block Cabernet

Winery Exclusive

8 barrels 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.

Highway Block is sourced from a vineyard planted by the Stantons, a longtime Napa Valley family that has grown and sold grapes in Napa Valley since 1947, when Jesse Stanton purchased his first parcel. With vineyards in the Oakville and St. Helena AVAs, the Stantons produce small amounts of wine themselves but sell most of their grapes to premium-focused wineries like Groth. Third-generation family member, Doug Stanton, farms his family’s vineyards himself. As with other growers in the Oakville Neighbors Series, Groth is drawn to those rare, hardworking partners who work their own land.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Our Highway Block Cabernet Sauvignon possesses an inky purple-garnet hue. Vivid aromas of blueberry pie, sweet red pepper and hickory, with hints of fresh cut flowers and hay, radiate from the glass. The ripe, focused palate displays a spectrum of rich, dark fruit — from ripe blueberry to tart cherry — that drives through a long finish with polished tannins and an energetic lift of bright acidity. — Director of Winegrowing Ted Henry

Oakville, Napa Valley


Planted in 1971 by Doug Stanton’s father, John Stanton, the vineyard source for Highway Block is a 33-acre property in Oakville, located near the center of the AVA on valley floor land. The site is long and narrow, beginning on the St. Helena Highway and backing up to the Napa River. With neighbors such as Morlet, the vineyard features gravelly, sandy clay and loam soils that produce grapes of rich suppleness and texture.


This plush, complex Cabernet pairs beautifully with smoked baby back ribs. Opulent in its youth, this wine will continue into full bloom over the next 10-12 years.
