Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
This delivers a very tightly focused, almost piercing beam of cassis, raspberry coulis and bitter cherry fruit, scored with singed alder and iron notes. Incense and tobacco details chime in on the finish. Long and refined, with the fruit leaving a sweet and mouthwatering echo. Best from 2022 through 2038.
Deep garnet-black in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has a nose of tar, earth and leather over a core of cassis and redcurrants plus pepper hints. The palate is medium-bodied, lean, chewy and a bit simple with a short finish.
