Groth Oakville-Napa Valley 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, $107.09-$125.99, 97 points, poured core black grading to a dark ruby red with purple highlights, a broad clear meniscus, and dense sticky legs.
The profuse aromas wafted above the glass as an aura of perfumed fragrances with a cedar potpourri, luscious red fruits, and ripe blackberry liqueur dominating.
Velvety full-bodied red wine with good acidity and a lover's tannic embrace imparted a generous cornucopia of fruit flavors nuanced with mulling spice, red licorice, and truffles.
Finished long on the trailing palate, easy developing pepper spices, kirsch, tart with a hint of citrus, and a well balanced 14.7% alcohol.
Maybe the best Groth Reserve I've tasted.
Drink this BIG red wine by itself or something formidable; I chose a spiced-rubbed Angus Cowboy steak.
Groth Vineyards, why it's a "go to" winery.
