    October 22, 2018 - Beautiful acidity in this wine (Medium). Medium nose of Black fruit (Blackberry, black cherry, Black plum), Tannins are soft and well integrated. Some aging characteristics of Lead pencil, leather and stewed fruit. Finish was long with some hint of pepper on the backend. Overall - this wine is very good and has aged beautifully. That said, I would drink now, I don't think it can get any better and may start losing that acid.

    September 25, 2018 - Lost something over the last few years. Didn't turn out as nice as I hoped. Not a great year

    September 15, 2018 - Overall note from a Groth tasting, presented by the winery at the Yacht Club in Lillydale. The pours were small, but sufficient to understand each wine.
    2013 Groth Oakville Cabernet Sauvignonn – This comes across as big and a bit green. This seems quite young, is quite simple, and got me thinking that they better age well to justify the price. Impression - 88
    2014 Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – This is a step up from the regular cabernet. At least there is some interest. Full bodied with spice, dark fruit, earth and chocolate. I still don’t get the price tag though. Impression - 89.
    2008 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon – This wine was boring and tired. This wine does not taste like it is meant to age, as it should be singing right now. Impression - 87
    2009 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon – A slightly different flavor profile from the 2008, but also dull and tired. I should have asked the presenters if they decanted and how long. This was either over decanted or is not aging well. Impression - 87
    2010 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon – Ok, this tastes like an acceptable cabernet. Our discussion at the table was that it just tastes “cabby”, and I would expect more from Napa and this producer. Impression - 88

    July 8, 2018 - Outstanding. Berries, tannins have mellowed nicely. Drink up if you have this.
