2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 750 mL Wine

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 750 mL Wine

The third consecutive cool and late growing season of 2012 was perfect for Cabernet Sauvignon. Our dry winter ended with moderate rainfall in March, giving us a long growing season and also led to richer flavor development. We opened the vine canopies to ensure sunlight, warmth and good air circulation around the grape clusters. The night-harvested grapes retained their enticing aromas and naturally pleasing acidity all the way to the bottle.

2013 Textbook Merlot Napa Valley 750 mL

Rainfall returned with a vengeance in 2011, including a wet winter and storms into June, delaying flowering. A cool summer pushed ripening back, and led the most diligent of growers to trim canopies and yields as a precaution. Shatter, combined with aggressive crop management, led to one of the smallest harvests in years. In the end, quality was better than expected, and again showed that Napa Valley, even in a cool, wet year, can deliver the flavor and structure required for delicious world-class wines.

Uproot Wines Napa Valley Wine Mixed Pack, 2 x 750 mL

Uproot Wines Napa Valley Wine Mixed Pack, 2 x 750 mL

We love a challenge and 2011 was one. For our Cabernet we went to Howell Mountain in St. Helena, where two ideal blocks on a rocky hillside gave us the warm weather conditions and drainage we needed for great fruit. We aged it in 65% new oak to give it just the right amount of smoky flavors. Cooler weather meant it took three weeks longer for our Sauvignon Blanc to ripen. We harvested from two different blocks of a single vineyard and fermented in stainless steel barrels. We fermented half in stainless steel for brightness; the other half in oak to smooth out the green notes. Then we blended them back together for a complexity that reflects the best of both worlds. We got an excellent Napa Valley vintage in spite of-or maybe even thanks to-the weather.

2012 Alta Napa Valley Chardonnay 750 mL Wine

2012 Alta Napa Valley Chardonnay 750 mL Wine

The 2012 Alta Winery Chardonnay has a compelling nose of lemon blossoms, bananas, and pineapples layered above clove and allspice and the perfume of toasted oak. In the mouth, the oak integrates seamlessly with tropical fruit and pineapple flavors, while the acidity brightens the fruit as it stretches out across the palate. This wine has good complexity, with a crisp mouth feel, hints of citric zest and tropical fruit creaminess. The palate is warmed by the oak influence, which works well with the flavors evolving over time into spiced pears. The wine was made for early consumption, but the acidity and aromatic sophistication should last for up to a decade.

2012 Uproot Wines Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley Somerston Vineyards 750 mL Wine

2012 Uproot Wines Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley Somerston Vineyards 750 mL Wine

2012 was the perfect Napa Valley vintage. Spring bud break, warm days, cool nights, and rain at all the right times. Harvest took place overnight on August 30th to preserve the desired acidity level. The two lots were pressed separately and placed into tank to cold settle. Fermentation began in stainless steel tanks and was later transferred to oak barrels. The Kelso block was aged in neutral French oak Puncheons, while the Julia block was aged in both one-year-old French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. Aged for 8 months.

2010 Anthem Estate Merlot Mt. Veeder Napa Valley 750 mL Wine

2010 Anthem Estate Merlot Mt. Veeder Napa Valley 750 mL Wine

Our 2010 Napa Valley growing season was another successful vintage. The season will be remembered as relatively long due to the wet Spring and cool Summer temperatures that lasted until the end of August. We welcomed higher temperatures in late August and September that helped our grapes fully mature, and more mild weather in October that gave our grapes the hang time needed to achieve optimum ripeness. As a result, our 2010 Cabernet is a very deep, intense wine in both color and concentration.

2011 Uproot Wines Limited Edition Etched Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5 L Magnum

2011 Uproot Wines Limited Edition Etched Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5 L Magnum

2011 started with a summer that didn't get quite as hot as cabernet fruit likes, followed by some good downpours during harvest, which can lead to rot. So we went to Howell Mountain in St. Helena, where two ideal blocks on a rocky hillside gave us the warm weather conditions and drainage we needed for great fruit. We aged it in 65% new oak to give it just the right amount of smoky flavors. And got an excellent vintage in spite of-or maybe even thanks to-the weather. Limited to a production of 50 bottles per year, Uproot's special edition Cabernet magnums are hand-etched and hand-painted by an amazing group of Napa Valley craftsmen.

2011 B Side Red Blend, Napa Valley 750 mL Wine

2011 B Side Red Blend, Napa Valley 750 mL Wine

The 2011 vintage was challenging for growers. It was an unusually cool year with a late frost that affected many vineyards, reducing yields and delaying harvest. The weather remained unseasonably cool through much of the growing season, and was devoid of any real grape ripening heat spikes until well into September. Rain and lower temperature returned again in October, further reducing yields and raising concerns of botrytis. These early rain events gave way to the long-awaited Indian summer, with the grapes finally reaching full maturity. While the harvest wasn't abundant, the emerging crop displayed powerfully concentrated flavors and quality.
