Wine Advocate | Rating: 88LAST TASTED 5/94. The 1984 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon has quickly reached full maturity. It reveals a dark garnet color with moderate amber creeping in at the edge. The nose is full of jammy, sweet, black fruits intertwined with aromas of cedar, chocolate, and herbs. Fleshy, medium to full-bodied, and velvety-textured, this low acid, plump Cabernet is ideal for drinking now and over the next 3-4 years.Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 86Bright, full of fruit and well-balanced. The flavors are cherry, currant and toasty oak like a new Bordeaux. Very attractive in a crisp, straightforward style. Needs two to three years aging.
