Groth Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
Groth's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful, hearty wine with good depth and density, but very much in the classic, mid-weight Groth style. Dark cherry, pomegranate, smoke, tobacco, menthol, licorice and dried flowers are nicely delineated in this attractive, expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. Give the 2015 a few years in bottle for the tannin to soften.
Blended with 15% Merlot, this has a classic character of Old World savoriness, opening in a burst of cassis before becoming more well defined in cedar, clove and crayon wax. The firm tannins never distract, instead supporting a core of full-bodied roundness and plush texture.
More solid than special, though the core of dark berry, cedar, anise and crushed rock flavors makes for a compelling drink. Drink now through 2025. 19,000 cases made.
