    Winemaker'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.

    Try this Cabernet with a lamb loin marinated in olive oil and garden herbs with lemon mashed Yukon Gold potatoes and Swiss chard.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Packed with red and black currant flavors, this wine has the cool, refreshing feel of the forest. Tannins frame the berry fruit, providing contrast in umami flavors of wood-ear mushrooms, both tannins and fruit lasting in a finely structured, luxurious finish. Balanced for ten years of age.

    Young now, marked by hard tannins that accentuate the acidity. The flavors are forward and jammy, suggesting blackberries, cherries, orange zest and sweet, smoky cedar wood. Rough-hewn now, with an angular feeling, but should develop softness and roundness after 2012

    I had this wine twice recently. The first tasting showed a lot of fruit and some smoke. Medium to full bodied, with some finish. A pleasant wine. The second bottle was one dimensional, flat with some spice. An unpleasant experience. I would not expect this inconsistency with Groth. I will not buy this vintage again.
