Groth Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 Wine Review (NW)

Berry nose
Intense core with herbal and vegetable notes
Good finish with chewy tannins

The herbal and vegetable notes are an acquired taste in this type of Cab. If you're not in to these qualities, you won't like this wine. Overall, it's a decent wine but definitely not worth paying $50 for. Find something else and raise a glass!

I think your description of the 2002 is also applicable to Groth 2003, although, as you say, it appeals to special tastes. I gave the 2003 a strong review but won't be buying it by the caseload.
