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. These beautiful wines are not only delicious, but one-of-a-kind works of art. Only exclusively offered to longtime Wine Club members, Uproot has made a handful of bottles available to Amazon's best customers. Grab a bottle before it's too late.

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.

2011 Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Merlot 750 mL Wine

2011 Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Merlot 750 mL Wine

Thanks to cool weather and unexpected rains, 2011 was a demanding but, in the end, rewarding vintage for us. The wet winter and spring delayed the start of bloom and then cool temperatures slowed grape development, pushing the start of harvest back by two weeks. More reminiscent of France than Napa Valley, this vintage fashioned elegant wines with great aromatics and the lower level of sugars from the cool growing season translated into lower alcohol.

2011 Hedges CMS Columbia Valley Red 750ml

2011 Hedges CMS Columbia Valley Red 750ml

As in 2010, 2011 was another excellent but slightly unusual vintage in Washington State. The La Nina current again made for cool spring temperatures, which delayed bud break and slowed early season growth. When combined with a warm but not particularly hot summer, veraison was one to two weeks late, which meant the grapes for this wine came off during a cooler time of year than usual, resulting in expressive, concentrated fruit and color, lower alcohol and wonderful acidity.
