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.
87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2014
(this is Groth's first vineyard-designated chardonnay): Bright lemon-yellow color. Lemon drop, pear, brown spices and smoky oak on the nose. Supple and moderately concentrated, with a stony underpinning to the fresh peach and lemon flavors. Finishes a bit warm, with a firm edge of oak that became more obvious with aeration.
