Dark ruby in color, the 2017 Oakville Cabernet opens with aromas of sweet vanilla and allspice, followed by black currants, ripe plums and a savory hint of anise seed. The palate has a smooth entry, building to a big, full mouthfeel with firm tannins a juicy, crisp acidity. Dark fruits flood the mid-palate in waves of blackberry and cassis. The finish is pleasantly dry and slightly spicy. Steak-frites, or a good old-fashioned juicy hamburger will be excellent companions for this big red wine. If meat isn't for you, this Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon will also pair beautifully with a rich wild mushroom risotto.

The 2017 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville) is a gorgeous wine. Pliant and racy in the glass with striking depth, it offers terrific richness and intensity. The 2017 benefits from some lots that might have otherwise gone into the Reserve. Super-ripe dark red cherry, pomegranate, mint, cinnamon and rose petal all add nuance, but it is the wine's balance and overall sense of harmony that stand out the most. This flamboyant Cabernet is a real overachiever.
