Region Napa Valley, California
Groth Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville
Dark ruby in color, the 2017 Oakville Cabernet opens with aromas of sweet vanilla and allspice, followed by black currants, ripe plums and a savory hint of anise seed. The palate has a smooth entry, building to a big, full mouthfeel with firm tannins a juicy, crisp acidity. Dark fruits flood the mid-palate in waves of blackberry and cassis. The finish is pleasantly dry and slightly spicy.
86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot
