1997 Groth "Reserve" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #992474 93 points Vinous

 Moderately saturated medium red. Highly complex yet laid-back nose offers aromas of redcurrant, tobacco, underbrush and herbs, plus subtle spicy oak tones. Tighter and more firmly structured than the regular Oakville bottling, showing more red fruits than black and a complicating note of woodsmoke. This terroir-driven wine's firm acid/tannin spine extends the finish and keeps the wine fresh. (ST)  (9/2018)

K&L Notes

The 1997 Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Napa Valley fruit, 100% Estate Grown, produced and bottled. The blend is 86% Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakcross Vineyard) and 14% Merlot (Hillview Vineyard). This is the first year that Groth has used the Oakville appellation on the label. The wine is rich and deep with lots of cassis and black cherry fruit. The tannins are soft and velvety. Superb!
