Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Oakville 2005

Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Oakville 2005


92 points Vinous

  Bright, full ruby. Vibrant aromas of crushed blackberry, blueberry, minerals and fruity bitter chocolate, complicated by notes of caraway seed and game. Supple and fine-grained but still primary and unevolved. Offers a lovely combination of texture and energy, with the long, echoing finish displaying very suave tannins. Ultimately more concentrated and generous than the basic Oakville bottling. (ST)   (5/2016)

  Centered on a rich, full, vibrant core of lively blackberry and wild berry. Though tannic and chewy, the flavors hold their own and the tannins are kept in check by a mix of espresso, mocha, vanilla bean and chewy currant.
