James Suckling

This has a mineral nose with aromas of blackcurrants, dried herbs, graphite and iodine. It’s medium-bodied with fine tannins. A little short, but nicely done. Give it time to open. Drink or hold.

Vinous

The 2017 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville) is a gorgeous wine. Pliant and racy in the glass with striking depth, it offers terrific richness and intensity. The 2017 benefits from some lots that might have otherwise gone into the Reserve. Super-ripe dark red cherry, pomegranate, mint, cinnamon and rose petal all add nuance, but it is the wine's balance and overall sense of harmony that stand out the most. This flamboyant Cabernet is a real overachiever.

Wine Spectator

Open and plush in feel, with a pretty, savory frame surrounding gently mulled plum and blackberry notes. Light tobacco and warm stone details chime on the finish. Drink now through 2027. 25,000 cases made.
