Aromas of cassis, ripe red cane berries, and warm vanilla beans, along with a hint of cedar draw you in, inviting that first sip. The palate entry is full and lush with juicy black plum, red currant, and a hint of dried cherries. The abundant fine-grained tannins give a full mouthfeel that is complimented by sweet vanilla notes mid-palate, and a bright acidity throughout. Leading into a warm, spicy, and persistent finish. Pair with simply seasoned lamb rib chops well seared on the grill, or a good old-fashioned juicy hamburger will be excellent companions for this big red wine. If meat isn't for you, this Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon will also pair beautifully with a rich wild mushroom risotto.

Groth's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville) is soft, pretty and understated. A sweet floral and spice character gives this gracious, mid-weight Oakville Cabernet lovely aromatic top notes. The 2016 is an attractive wine, but is also a bit light, even within this more restrained style favored by Groth.

More solid than special, though the core of dark berry, cedar, anise and crushed rock flavors makes for a compelling drink. Drink now through 2025. 19,000 cases made.
