Groth Vineyards & Winery
www.grothwines.com

From its inception in 1982, the winery has been family owned and operated; it produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay from Napa Valley's Oakville AVA.  In special years they will make a "Reserve" bottling of Cabernet Sauvignon from a small lot in their 121 acre Oakville Estate. The Groths also own and operate the 44-acre Hillview Vineyard in Yountville, a prime source for the Winery's Chardonnay and Merlot.

2012 Chardonnay Napa Valley

Chardonnay

Long, cool fermentation in a mixture of old and new barrels (25%) gives this Chardonnay layers of fruitiness and complexity that result in a wine that is very enjoyable when young or after several years of bottle age. This method of fermentation, in conjunction with whole cluster pressing and "sur lie" aging add layers of toastiness and creaminess to the wine. Together these components meld together harmoniously to create a balanced wine that is both lively and rich in aroma and flavor.

2013 Sauvignon Blanc

97% Sauvignon Blanc & 3% Semillon

This was a an amazing good vintage. Produced from Napa Valley fruit, this 60% inert barrel (4-12 years of age) and 40% stainless steel fermented wine was aged sur lie for five months prior to bottling. It has a crisp and lively backbone with lush melon and citrus flavours and aromas. A great liveliness, fruitiness and balance on the palate and extraordinarily food friendly.

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley

81% Cabernet Sauvignon & 19% Merlot

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in this area of the Oakville AVA. Patience during bottle aging will reward the "steward" with an outstanding bottle over the next 10 to 15 years.

As a menu suggestion Dennis Groth recommends you drink his Cabernet Sauvignon with steak. ie. "A slab and a Cab"

2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Oakville Napa

95% Cabernet Sauvignon & 5% Merlot

3All of the Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is from Goth's Reserve Block at the Estate and this is only the sixth time Groth has produced this magnificent and truly a "Reserve" wine. The 2014 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows the intrinsic black stone fruit nuances and the soft tannin structure that define their Oakville, Napa Valley-floor Cabernet. The Reserve Cabernet gets every ounce of special care a winery can devote to its flagship wine. Aged 22 months in new French Oak and then bottle aged more than another year before its release. Limited quanities.
