All of the Cabernet Sauvignon is from a 27.78-acre reserve block at the Groth estate. Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon clusters are night-harvested, allowing the fruit to remain cool for cluster-sorting followed by berry sorting, all done by hand. The must is then cold-soaked for up to five days. After fermentation is complete, barrel-aging takes place in dedicated, gravity-flow and dual-level reserve barrel rooms. The wine is racked barrel to barrel and aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak, followed by over a year of bottle-aging. The 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows the intrinsic black stone fruit nuances and the elegant tannin structure that define its Oakville, Napa Valley-floor Cabernet.
