Winemaker Notes

The 1998 Merlot represents the beginning of a continous Merlot program for Groth. Historically, Merlot was bottled only when enough remained after blending with our Cabernet Sauvignon. With our newer vineyards finally coming on-stream we are now able to consistently produce a reasonable quantity to bottle. You will find that this Merlot is made in a full, rich, robust style that can continue to age gracefully for 5-10 years.

The intense black cherry flavors of the 1997 Merlot will go beautifully with any red meat. The fat content in lamb, beef, sausages, even buffalo, will help to control the tannin in a very young wine. Pasta with a red sauce, pizza, and burgers are all enhanced by the spicy aromas and good balance of fruit and oak flavors.
