August - Wine of the Month
Groth Vineyards & Winery
Napa Valley, California
Groth Vineyards & Winery is a family owned winery producing Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon since 1982. The moment Dennis and Judy Groth saw the spectacular sea of vineyards from atop the Oakville Grade, they knew Oakville was not only where they wanted to make wine, but where they wanted to make their home. Thirty-five years later, Groth Vineyards & Winery is now one of the most prestigious family-owned wineries in the country.
Michael Weis, winemaker at Groth Vineyards & Winery since 1994, brings more than three decades of experience with Oakville grapes and wines to the job of nurturing the best possible expression of the vineyards.
Located in the heart of Napa Valley's most esteemed Cabernet district, the Groth Estate produces high-caliber Cabernet Sauvignon that is full, lush and exquisitely elegant. It is no surprise Robert Parker made Groth the first American winery to receive his coveted 100 point score; a deserved reward for their quality and consistency.
“Aromas of cream, hot stone and dried fruits follow through to a full body, tangy fruit and a savory finish. Lots of lemon and vanilla character.”
91 Points, James Suckling
“Subtle and complex with mint, black currant and licorice aromas. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a fresh finish. Clean and refined. A delicious cabernet to drink now or later. Yes.”
93 Points, James Suckling
