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.
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2014
Bright medium ruby. Tight, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice, minerals and musky tobacco. Densely packed and deep, offering compelling creamy sweetness to its flavors of black fruits, licorice and cocoa powder. This tactile, seriously concentrated wine really saturates the mouth on the back end, finishing with broad tannins, plenty of sweet oak and excellent persistence. Carries its 14.9% alcohol gracefully.
