Groth Oakville-Napa Valley 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, $84.99-$99.99, 96 points, poured an opaque deep red with flashes of maroon trending rosewood-red toward the broad clear wine ring with heavy sheeting at the glass edge.
The wonderfully complex aroma profile wafted mulling spices, roses, sandalwood, and toasty ripe blackberry.
Borderline full-body, good acidity, supple and appropriate tannins carried flavors reflective of the nose and a touch of sassafras with building warm spices which accelerated into the forever finish of bourbon notes, mint, and a warm well-integrated 14.5% alcohol.
