Yummy! Got a bottle as a Christmas present. 93 on Wilfred Wong's list. BTW, how do you all feel about Wong's list?

    I don't know about Wilfred Wong, but I had a Groth 2007 last week and it was quite yummy.

    I think it will benefit with another few years of bottle age if you can wait...........

      I like Wilfred but he has a tough job appearing neutral as BevMo's in-house reviewer. Still............. I'd love to have that job!

        The 1997 is very nice. You "kids" need some patience ;)

          Groth has made a significant comeback from some major vineyard issues I remember them having about 10 years ago. I always used to love their Cab and then I remember they had to replant some vineyards and it took a while to get re-established. They also make a pretty nice Sauvignon Blanc, though I still don't really get why people grow SB on such expensive land in Napa. Glad they do though.

            Their Napa SB is one of my favs. with sushi. Good fruit, and well-balanced. Stands up to any heat from the wasabi, any salt in the shoyu sauce, and goes well with the seafood. That is my go-to wine for sushi, and when I see it on a restaurant's wine list, I feel that someone really did taste the wines with the food.

            Also goes well with most tempura, should one deviate a bit.

            Is this the Napa Oakville, or the Red Stripe? Either should be quite good, though the Red Stripe might benefit from a few more years in the cellar.

            Do not know Wilfred Wong.

            Enjoy,

            Hunt
