“Taylor Lane is the place where I cut my teeth learned a whole lot about winemaking. The site is totally wild and Burgundian-esque with cool breezy nights. I made a series of big wines there that I quite enjoyed for about a decade. But I knew that wasn’t what the vineyard wanted me to be making.
Just a few miles from the Pacific and adjacent to William Selyem’s Summa Vineyard, these were grapes that begged for a true Burgundian treatment. So I set my personal tastes aside and brought in a Burgundian winemaking legend (he would only come if I agreed to never use his name) to help with those first few harvests.
Like great Burgundies, this is built for the long haul, so I only bottle them in Mags and I only release them when they’re ready.”
– Joe Wagner, Winemaker
2014 was a great vintage in the Sonoma Coast. From right next door to Thomas Rivers Brown and Williams Selyem’s Summa vineyard, this is pure Western sonoma coast Pinot Noir in all its glory. Aged for a decade and just starting to hit its prime.

WS #4 2019 Wine of the Year, 96 Points, Wine Spectator
2016 was an incredibly special year in Napa Valley. It was essentially the 5th straight vintage of near perfect-conditions and a lot of the big boys produced some of their biggest, most elegant Cabernets to date. Groth’s was still one of the standouts in any group, a deeply concentrated, weighty Cab with sappy, juicy fruit and a carefully intertwined tannic structure. Absolutely gorgeous.
