The progression of a wine should flow seamlessly from the entry, through the mid-palate, and into a long-drawn-out finish. The aromas should be rich and intense, enticing you to take a sip. This 2014 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon does just that with massive black cherry pie filling, cola, and vanilla custard on the nose. A smooth entry builds into a mouthful of well-structured tannins and dark fruit before moving into more red fruit and bright acidity in the mid-palate. The wine finishes rich with blackberries and oak spice. This is Cabernet, so of course it will be great with steak. With its big fruit character and crisp acidity, be sure to consider more subtle cuts such as tenderloin (filet mignon). As an alternative, it will be equally at home alongside a big, juicy pork chop.

Blended with 9% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, this Cabernet opens with earthy aromas of tar, sage and cedar. It expands on the palate to show an elegant structure of finessed, supple tannins alongside layers of clove and cinnamon atop ripe red and black berries.

A hint of singed savory leads off, turning quickly to a core of raspberry and mulberry fruit, lined with alluring tea, sanguine and iron notes. Offers fine-grained grip and should unwind nicely in the cellar. Drink now through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Groth's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville) is soft, pretty and understated. A sweet floral and spice character gives this gracious, mid-weight Oakville Cabernet lovely aromatic top notes. The 2016 is an attractive wine, but is also a bit light, even within this more restrained style favored by Groth.
