Groth - Oakville - Cabernet Sauvignon
Overview: A breathtakingly beautiful place set among centuries-old oak trees and a patchwork of meticulously planted vineyards, Oakville has become recognized as one of the world’s preeminent wine regions. Here soil and climate coalesce, allowing us to produce elegant, age-worthy and immensely enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit for this delicious wine comes from our Oakville Estate and carefully selected lots from our grower neighbors.
The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is grown on our Estate vineyards and those of several partner growers all within the Oakville AVA — in the heart of the Napa Valley. The fruit is night-harvested, cluster sorted by hand, crushed, then fermented at our Oakville Estate winery. Coming from a diverse selection of vineyards, this wine showcases the complexity and diversity within this compact AVA.
Tasting Notes: Dark ruby in color, the Oakville Cabernet opens with aromas of sweet vanilla and allspice, followed by black currants, ripe plums and a savory hint of anise seed. The palate has a smooth entry, building to a big, full mouthfeel with firm tannins a juicy, crisp acidity. Dark fruits flood the mid-palate in waves of blackberry and cassis. The finish is pleasantly dry and slightly spicy.
Pairing: Steak-frites, or a good old-fashioned juicy hamburger will be excellent companions for this big red wine. If meat isn’t for you, this Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon will also pair beautifully with a rich wild mushroom risotto.
