All of the Cabernet Sauvignon is from our Reserve Block here at the Oakville Estate. The 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows the intrinsic black stone fruit nuances and the soft tannin structure that define our Oakville, Napa Valley-floor Cabernet. The Reserve Cabernet gets every ounce of special care a winery can devote to its flagship wine.

Wine Enthusiast"Cellar Selection" Sourced from the producer's Reserve Block and blended with 10% Merlot from its Hillview vineyard, this is classic Oakville Cabernet, velvety on the palate and spicy in cinnamon and clove on the nose. Blackberry, dried herb and baked cherry-plum pie all play a part in providing it with richness and complexity. Drink through 2022.

James SucklingA balanced and beautiful red with chili, black currants and blackberry character. Full body, round and firm tannins and a long, long finish. A beautiful Groth. Drink or hold.

VinousA dark, mysterious wine, Groth 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve possesses superb depth and delineation. Sweet herbs, cedar, tobacco and leather add nuance on a virile, imposing finish supported by beams of tannin. This big, rich Cabernet is going to require at least a few years in the cellar, but it is impressive, even at this early stage.

Wine SpectatorThere's lots to admire in this firm, rich Cabernet, with blackberry and blueberry flavors and hints of lead pencil and graphite. The gritty, edgy tannins stand out. Drink now through 2028. 3,500 cases made.
