"All of the Cabernet Sauvignon is from our 27.78 acre Reserve Block here at the Estate. Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon clusters are night harvested, allowing the fruit to remain cool for cluster sorting followed by berry sorting, all done by hand. The must is then cold soaked for up to five days. After fermentation is complete, barrel aging takes place in our dedicated, gravity-flow, and dual level Reserve barrel rooms. The wine is racked barrel to barrel and aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, followed by over a year of bottle-aging. The 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows the intrinsic black stone fruit nuances and the elegant tannin structure that define our Oakville, Napa Valley-floor Cabernet." —winemaker
"This is very classy with mineral, black currant and spice character. Shows chili and Thai basil too. Full body, firm tannins and a bright and persistent finish. Extremely long and elegant. Best ever from here in years?" —JamesSuckling.com

"A dark, mysterious wine, Groth 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve possesses superb depth and delineation. Sweet herbs, cedar, tobacco and leather add nuance on a virile, imposing finish supported by beams of tannin. This big, rich Cabernet is going to require at least a few years in the cellar, but it is impressive, even at this early stage. Drinking window: 2019 - 2032." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"Sourced from the producer's Reserve Block and blended with 10% Merlot from its Hillview vineyard, this is classic Oakville Cabernet, velvety on the palate and spicy in cinnamon and clove on the nose. Blackberry, dried herb and baked cherry-plum pie all play a part in providing it with richness and complexity. Drink through 2022. Cellar Selection." —Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
