Groth Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
The 2019 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is an alluring shade of deep purple-red, concentrated all the way to the edge of the glass. From the glass, it radiates an array of aromas that includes blackberry, red currant, coffee, cocoa powder and white pepper. On the palate, the fine and chalky tannin provides an excellent balance of an initial firm grit that leads to a soft and melted finish. Flavors of sour cherry, red raspberry and chocolate invite another sip.
Wood-grilled flat iron steak with caramelized root vegetables pairs beautifully with this wine. It is also a delicious choice with a cacio e pepe pasta, as the cheese and black pepper are a perfect match to the richness of the Cabernet.
Blend: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot
