The 2005 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 Groth's area of the Oakville AVA. Patience during bottle aging will reward the "steward" with an outstanding bottle over the next 10 to 15 years.
"I enjoy a glass of Oakville Cabernet with a grass-fed, roasted New York steak and a potato-butternut squash gratin."

"Slow-evolving bouquet of black cherry and plum. Rich stone stone fruit flavors with obvious wood tannins and minerals at the core. Still rather compact and slow to open, but this tasty, young Cab will certainly reward the patient."
Excellent full bodied mouth entertaining cabernet. It is worth the price. I plan to open my second bottle in 2012.
