About Groth Vineyards & Winery
Groth will forever be remembered for its record breaking 1985 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, the first California wine to receive a 100-point score from Robert Parker. Only three years after the vineyard was established, owners Dennis and Judy Groth churned out a superstar which put them on page one of the Napa Valley history books.
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013
Dark red. Musky redcurrant, licorice, smoke, tobacco, mocha and brown spices on the slightly medicinal nose. Supple, smooth and ripe but with little easy sweetness to the flavors of redcurrant, smoke, herbs and menthol. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins and very good length. This is carrying nearly 15% alcohol but hardly comes across as modern and overripe.
