    LAST 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.

    Bright, 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.

  • Groth is a solid and respected member of the legendary cadre that is classic Napa Cabernet. The original vineyard that owners Dennis and Judy Groth purchased in 1981 was planted by the founders of Silver Oak - Justin Meyer and Ray Duncan - and is in the heart of prime Cabernet Sauvignon land in the Oakville appellation. Groth also produces Napa Chardonnay, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
