Tasting Notes

"A rather refined vintage for Groth’s classic Oakville estate cabernet, heading towards, but not quite yet at prime drinking.  Expect the typical dark fruit of cabernet from the valley, but on a lighter, more finessed frame; acids are lively and there’s an irresistible succulence and sapidity here that drives additional sips.  Another 3-5 years in the cellar will surely increase the savoury side, though tannins are so supple and refined now that it will be tough to resist drinking it earlier.  I appreciate the elegance and sophistication on offer, a multi-dimensional experience rather than blunt force instrument."

"Cameron Parry found his cabernet vines ripened their fruit in 2016 at Brix levels that were lower than usual, sustaining acidity in the grapes. They produced a young and luscious Oakville cabernet, the wine integrating oak and fruit tannins in a way that supercharges its flavors. Rather than weighing the wine down, the structure empowers it, presenting plummy blue fruit, scents of cassis and fruity-umami notes of mushrooms that last, gracious, gentle and refined."
