Groth Sauvignon Blanc 2011 Tasting Notes...$15.59 per bottle

"This Sauvignon Blanc was produced from grapes grown in various microclimates of the Napa Valley. The warmer Napa Valley microclimates give us grapes that result in wines with a lush, full melon/citrus character in the aroma and in the flavor. The cooler Napa Valley fruit provides a solid, crisp backbone that gives the wine an exciting liveliness that balances the rich creaminess from "sur lie" aging." - Winemaker Notes
Blend: 93% Sauvignon Blanc and 7% Semillon

Groth Chardonnay 2010 Tasting Notes...$23.30 per bottle

"Long, cool fermentation in a mixture of old and new barrels gives our Chardonnay layers of fruitiness and complexity that result in a wine that is very enjoyable when young or after several years of bottle age. This method of fermentation, in conjunction with whole cluster pressing and "sur lie" aging add layers of toastiness and creaminess to the wine. Together these components meld together harmoniously to create a balanced wine that is both lively and rich in aroma and flavor." - Winemaker Notes

Groth Cabernet 2009 Tasting Notes...$46.79 per bottle

"The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA." - Winemaker Notes
