Winemaker's Notes:

We have hit another "home run" for the Groth Reserve program with the 2006 vintage. Our inaugural "return release" of the 2005 Reserve was a smashing success and the 2006 Reserve continues as a stunning reminder of how special our Reserve program is. For sixteen vintages, from 1983 to 1999, the grapes from Block 1 at our Oakville "home" vineyard produced grapes that made exquisite and memorable Reserve wines. The Reserve block was replanted in 2000 to new rootstocks, new clones, a new training/trellising system and a new vine row orientation. The result of this huge investment in time, energy and resources can be easily seen in our two initial offerings of this stupendous wine.
