Featured Wines: 
Groth Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 750ML
Groth Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 750ML
sku: 9254

Vintage: A late cool spring delayed bud break. As it turned out, this fortuitous delay in bud break mitigated any damage that might have resulted from a record heat wave in early July. Mild, moderate temperatures followed allowing the slowly developing berries to ripen over a very long period. We were blessed with a fantastic "Indian summer" during the entire month October allowing the grapes to reach optimum ripeness without the concern for "monster sugar".

Harvest: The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is grown on our Estate controlled vineyards, in the Oakville AVA, in the heart of the Napa Valley. The Oakville District is renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon and produces wines that are full, lush and very elegant.

Winemaking: Fermentation was carried out over a ten-day period in small, temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at an average temperature of 85 F. After pressing and settling, the wine was transferred to small French oak barrels for aging. The sweet vanilla character derived from 20 months in the barrels blends well with the black cherry and blackberry flavors and aromas of the wine.

Wine Maker's Notes: The 2006 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. Patience during bottle aging will reward the "steward" with an outstanding bottle over the next 10 to 15 years.more

sku: 9607

Vintage: Early bud break, bloom and set suggested a very early year for wine grapes. Temperatures resulted in early maturation of whites at lower sugars than we have seen in the past few vintages. Quality was high, yields were low. 2007 was a stunning vintage which gave us wonderful wine showing gobs of intensity and complexity.

Harvest: Our Chardonnay is made entirely from grapes grown in our Oakville and Hillview Vineyards. The cooler Hillview vineyard provides the tropical fruit, citrus and mineral notes that complement food nicely. Grapes from the warmer Oakville vineyards give our Chardonnay its distinctive green apple character.

Winemaking: All of the 2007 Chardonnay fruit was whole cluster pressed. After pressing and cold settling, the juice was transferred to French oak barrels, 30% of which were new, for fermentation and aging. After eight months of aging "sur lie", the wine was racked off the yeast lees, blended and finished for bottling.

Wine Maker's Notes: Long, cool fermentation in a mixture of old and new barrels gives our Chardonnay layers of fruitiness and complexity that result in a wine that is very enjoyable when young or after several years of bottle age. This method of fermentation, in conjunction with whole cluster pressing and "sur lie" aging add layers of toastiness and creaminess to the wine. Together these components meld together harmoniously to create a balanced wine that is both lively and rich in aroma and flavor.more
