California - More Fine Older Wine

Share

This offer is a marriage of wine from two fine private collections; together they make a hell of a list of great old California wine. We’ve written before – recently, even – about our love and admiration for the wines, so we’ll resist going over the same ground again. Suffice it to say that the wines look great, and we are suffering from wine merchant’s dilemma: we know we’re supposed to sell the wines – in fact we have to sell the wines – but we’d really like to keep them! Maybe just a couple? Which ones?...

Groth 1985 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

It's a pleasure to check in on these non-superstar California Cabernets. One's expectations for Monte Bello, Montelena, Mayacamas, and Diamond Creek are justifiably high; there are loads of pleasant surprises in the second rank. Oakville's Groth counts among these. Founded by an Atari executive in 1982, Groth specialized in Cabernets which married richness and elegance.

The 1985 Groth Cabernet is remarkably fresh. There is moderate bricking on the meniscus with a ruby center. Aromatically, there are layers of berry, plum, cedar, and spices. The tannins are resolved and the wine is supple and rich, but focused with lively acidity. There is still plenty of fruit and the finish is quite long and complex. Really great energy here! Enjoy after a brief decant with grilled New York strip or lamb loin chops.
