Groth Cabernet Sauvignon 2015


Groth’s 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a powerful, hearty wine with good depth and density, but very much in the classic, mid-weight Groth style.

Dark cherry, pomegranate, smoke, tobacco, menthol, licorice, and dried flowers are nicely delineated in this attractive, expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. Give 2015 a few years in bottle for the tannin to soften.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA.

The sweet vanilla character derived from 22 months in the barrels blends well with the black cherry and blackberry flavors and aromas of the wine.

Blended with 15% Merlot, this has a classic character of Old World savoriness, opening in a burst of cassis before becoming more well defined in cedar, clove and crayon wax. The firm tannins never distract, instead supporting a core of full-bodied roundness and plush texture.

This shows real interest on the nose with fresh blackcurrants, ivy, tea leaf, vanilla, cloves and peppermint. Freshness comes through aplenty on the palate, which is full-bodied with structured if chewy tannins, some pretty acidity and a driven finish.

The 2015 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon from Groth begins with inviting aromatics of dark currants and ripe cherries are woven together with pencil shavings, sweet spices, vanilla and hints of anise all taking shape. On the palate this possesses a medium-full body with a lovely soft, plush texture as layers of ripe dark fruits continue to lead up to the finish.
