About the Winery
Since 1981, the Groth family have owned and operated over 165 acres of prime real estate in Oakville between Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail. The winery sits across the street from Silver Oak. It is 1.4 miles from Opus One and 2 miles from Nickel & Nickel and Mondavi. Cakebread and Plumpjack are also nearby.
Today, the Dennis and Judy Groth's children are involved in managing the next generation of the winery. In 2014, Cameron Parry was installed as only the third winemaker in the history of the estate. His young, fresh, and technical insight has already raised the standard of these wines.
Muted at first, this reserve wine shows a deft hand. A red currant tone is met by a mild grip of tannins and a soft midpalate that is lightly rich in coconut shavings and mocha. Supple and balanced in richness, it offers classic flavors of cassis and cherry wrapped in supportive oak. ~94WE
Aromas of dark berry, fresh-cut herbs, cedary oak and gravelly earth are tight and well-centered. Still raw and edgy, but nothing a year or two won't resolve. Patience required. Best from 2020 through 2033. 4,000 cases made.~93WS
