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 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.

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.
