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 | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013
Bright, medium ruby-red. Black cherry, herbs, tobacco leaf and loam on the nose, sweetened by chocolatey oak. Juicy and firmly built, showing good clarity and brisk acidity but with an obviously herbal component to the black cherry and currant fruit. Finishes with serious but essentially fine-grained tannins and a lingering green element. Will this very primary young wine gain in complexity with time in bottle?
