By selecting the best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2006 vintage along with some serious blending considerations, we are happy to announce that the party was put into the bottle in December of 2008.  We’ve furthered the celebration by naming the wine “Nils” to honor his great dedication to fine winemaking.  We had a blast with the label!  Yep, that’s Nils pictured on the label.  He hasn’t grown-up one bit!

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The wine has a tremendous nose of dark fruit, highlighted by black currants. Hand selected new French Oak barrels provide a complimentary toastiness to this wine. It has a medium plus body with a fine acid and tannin balance. Enjoy the long finish. A classic! Recommended to drink from 2009-2020.
Ratings
“The outstanding 25th Anniversary bottling, which includes 25% Cabernet from the estate vineyards in Oakville, reveals a dense ruby/purple color, abundant cedar, black currant and licorice notes, medium to full body, and 12-15 years of aging potential.” Rated 92 points by Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, December 2008 issue.

11.2.2014 Lovely nose of blackberry, cabernet, dust and leather, more of the same on the palate, medium/big body, tasty, mouth filling, long finish and aftertaste. 4* Decanter, 92 points Parker, 91 points IWC. Nils as the first to receive a 100 Points from Parker for his 1985 Groth Reserve cabernet Sauvignon.
