    Groth Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 1985
    Magnum (1)

    "Groth's 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has consistently scored between 96-100 on six separate tastings. It was the winner of its flight in one tasting, and was undoubtedly the "wine of the vintage" for 1985 California Cabernet Sauvignon. Never as backward as many of its peers, it has always revealed a sweet, expansive, black-cherry and vanillin-scented, complex nose, as well as lavishly rich, full-bodied flavors that coat the palate with extraordinarily pure fruit, ripeness, power, and extraction. Its inner-core of sweetness and magnificent length put this wine into the category of celestial, legendary efforts. While unbelievably rich, the wine never comes across as heavy." (98 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #98, Apr. 1995)
