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.
