2012 ONEHOPE x Trefethen Oak Knoll District Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml Wine
Manufacturer: ONEHOPE Wine
A classic vintage for the Napa Valley, the 2012 growing season was characterized by warm days and cool nights. In our vineyards in the Oak Knoll District, a dry and warm spring provided the vines with a strong start and the summer was generally mild with most days getting up into the 80's and many nights as low as the 40's. The early start to the season was tempered by a slightly cooler than average autumn resulting in typical harvest dates for all varieties-and grapes and wines of exceptional quality. Every bottle helps fund screenings for skin cancer through Prevent Cancer Foundation.
2011 Uproot Wines Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750 mL Wine
Manufacturer: Uproot Wines
Brand: Uproot Wines
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.
