Beautiful and balanced - aromas of black cherry, mint and caraway seeds, candy and raisins. Medium+ tannins with a still pronounced acidity suggests this could go for a several more years. Enjoyed with a grilled hanger steak.

Very beautifully composed. Last I had it, the wine was open for 8 hours or so before serving. Had it right out of the bottle this time and it was a noticeable richer showing. New oak, vanilla tinged with herbs and mint, tannic backbone. Towards the end of it's short decant it became the wine I remember, with subdued fruit and new oak for a more round, beneath the ground approach.

This performed far beyond my expectation. Cedar and cherry tobacco with silky tannins.

So at first I was like, what is this? It was thin and weird, nothing like Groth. But ya gotta wait! Give this young pup 2-3 hours before you even taste it. The Oakville comes out in force, but it's gotta break free! It's so deep, and so structured, it's amazing.. But it's buried under a mountain of phenols and tannins right now. In fact, save this until 2020. It'll be ahhmazing!

Middleweight this vintage with very little tannin. Forgettable.

Almost the opposite of bright. Dark, underripe red fruits, dried to minimize juiciness. Violet and floral quality. Some leather. Forest floor and spice. Slightest hint of vanilla deep within the dry chalkiness. Massive tannin. Weighty, chewy, and showing serious grip. Very impressive.

Groth Vineyards & Winery is a family owned winery producing Napa Valley wines since 1982, sustainably farming 121 acres of vineyards. Dark intense red with aromas of dark dried fruit and smoky oak. On the palate cherry and plums with a touch of pepper spice. Firm tannins on this full body wine lingering with toasty oak notes. I think it needs a little more time to develop and soften. Tasting Sample.
