Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML 2010      
Sku: 17026

This is the fifth vintage from our historic Reserve vineyard after a replanting of the vineyards took us out of production for five vintages. The new rootstock, clones, trellising system and vine row orientation have proven to be the perfect combination of variables for the Groth Reserve Cabernet. Location is the paramount factor providing the perfect blend of diurnal temperatures, rainfall amounts and soil profiles for our winegrowing endeavors

Rating
"From the winery's estate vineyard, on the eastern side of the Oakville appellation, this Cab is incredibly lush and delicious. It dazzles with rich blackberry, cherry pie, currant and cassis liqueur flavors, perfectly accented by sweet, smoky oak. It's soft in tannins, yet ageworthy." 93 Points,Wine Enthusiast

Wine maker notes
The reds had a few issues out of the ordinary in 2009 that required a tremendous amount of time and energy in the vineyards. The steady warm days gave way to cooler weather and a rain incident like we have not seen since the Fall of 1989. Even though many of the red grapes were harvested prior to this rain event some Cabernet was still on the vine after the showers. Fortunately Cabernet is quite resistant to any collateral damage caused by the moisture and the grapes came through in great shape. This, of course, was a result of intense work in the vineyards to eliminate any fruit that might have been compromised by the rains. This thinning, in conjunction with both cluster and berry sorting in the cellar, resulted in big, rich, unctuous reds with outstanding color and depth. A great year of reds!
