2020 Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville
The Groth Oakville Estate is nestled in the heart of Oakville, a breathtakingly beautiful place stretching between the majestic mountain bookends of the Mayacamas to the west and the Vaca range to the east. With hope and intuition, sharing a vision with their esteemed neighbors, the Groth family helped establish the Oakville AVA, which has become recognized as one of the world’s preeminent wine regions. The fruit for this delicious wine comes from our sustainably farmed estate vineyard and carefully selected lots from our grower neighbors.
The 2019 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is an alluring shade of deep purple-red, concentrated all the way to the edge of the glass. From the glass, it radiates an array of aromas that includes blackberry, red currant, coffee, cocoa powder and white pepper. On the palate, the fine and chalky tannin provides an excellent balance of an initial firm grit that leads to a soft and melted finish. Flavors of sour cherry, red raspberry and chocolate invite another sip.
