Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
All of the Cabernet Sauvignon is from the winery's 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.
"Perfect, classic, abundant" describe the 2012 vintage. Quality and quantity were in great supply in the 2012 harvest. Beautiful Spring, Summer and Fall weather highlighted the growing season. With very few concerns, winegrowers and winemakers were able to sit back and allow Mother Nature to strut her stuff – and strut she did. The vintage was, literally, a mirror image of the classic 2005 vintage – climate–wise, yield-wise and quality-wise. Great aroma development, phenomenal extraction and unctuous flavors were the result of patience and creativity.
