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.
89 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013
Pale green-tinged yellow. High-pitched, subtle aromas of apple, white pepper, quinine, powdered stone and dusty herbs. Juicy and brisk, showing very good energy but a slight hard edge to the flavors of pear, white pepper and dusty herbs. Has decent sweetness but finishes a tad youthfully harsh. This needs a year or two of cellaring.
