2011 Napa Valley
How do you make a standout cab amongst the gazillion others in Napa? If you’re Uproot, you say yes to that challenge. This is classic cabernet, but with a chocolate-covered cherry on top.
Vibrant and spicy, with a ruby color that’s deepened by a splash of Petit Verdot, our debut red has a definite democratic charm. Interesting nutmeg and toasted marshmallow notes together with excellent drinkability make it the wine that pleases.
We made this dry, fruit-forward rosé from 52% Carignane and 48% Syrah. Say “Care-in-yawn” and you’re close enough. It’s our new favorite way to kick back and savor the afternoon.
2012 Napa Valley
What a year for this Napa grape. The perfect amount of rain in winter; hot at the end of July to take the fruit from green to ripe golden at just the ideal time. This 2012 has the crisp, brightness of a classic sauv blanc with an unexpectedly polished finish. Polished and delicious. Our sophomore release and the time is definitely ripe.
2012 Santa Ynez Valley
Crave something new? Grenache Blanc is an uncommon varietal around Napa, which is one of the reasons we’re crazy about it. So we set out to show off just what it can do. This is no Chardonnay. Either you love it or hate it. Let us know either way. Neutral is no way to be around here.
Gray Edition Sauvignon Blanc
2011 Napa Valley
Sauv Blancs are typically made to be slurped up right away. But we’re not ones for “typically.” We aged it in oak barrels nine whole months longer than usual to make it sumptuously creamier than you’d expect. Some might call it reserve (if anyone else actually did a reserve of this varietal). We call it Gray Edition. That would be Greg + Jay = decidedly unreserved about this enigmatic special edition.
