Uppercut Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 750ml
Discover Uppercut Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 750ml:
Wide and muscular but friendly and affordable to eat, our Uppercut Cabernet Sauvignon is perfect for scalding steaks. Generous aromas of black cherry and blackberry attract you and then, with each swirl and sip, reveal complex traces of mocha, aniseed, tamari and mineral, plus an appetizing touch of smoke. Well structured tannins give this wine a base for daring food flavors, as well as a plush texture that carries rich, dark fruity flavors through a persistent finish. The multi-layered personality of this wine is unequivocally Napa Valley Cab.
The idea behind Uppercut is to produce a Cabernet accessible from one of the world’s leading wine regions. Fortunately, winemaker Chris Cooney has access to fruit from the best valleys, banks and mountain vineyards in Napa. This gives him the ability to create a rich, complex and consistent vintage wine. Uppercut Cabernet Sauvignon comes from all lengths of the Napa Valley for layers of impeccable taste and balance. Almost half the grapes came from Rutherford, in the heart of the Napa Valley, and another quarter from Calistoga and St. Helena. Flexibility in sourcing is one of the keys to Uppercut’s success. The winemaker’s intention with Uppercut is to produce a delicious and affordable wine that blends well with food and conveys the unmistakable taste and personality of the Napa Valley.
Known as the king of red grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys the same royal status in California as his native house in Bordeaux.
The most common red wine grape in California, Cabernet Sauvignon has the highest price per ton and is the dominant grape variety in some of the most prestigious brands in California.
Some of the most expensive wines in the United States are made from this noble grape. Worship wines like Screaming Eagle and Harlan Estate sell for thousands of bottles, but don’t let that scare you – non-cult Cabs can be found for much less, starting at about $20. The best growing regions include the Napa Valley and Sonoma County.
Cabernet Sauvignon is dry and full-bodied, and appreciated for its potential for long aging. It is also known for its distinctive green flavors such as paprika, eucalyptus and mint. Cabernet grown in California tends to be more fruity and smooth, with rich notes of dark blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as earth, powder, mocha and cedar.

Cabernet Sauvignon is a red wine grape variety from the vitis vinifera grape plant species. It is the world's most commonly planted red wine grape variety, and its wines have lately been rated as the most sought-after in the world. When vinified properly, it may produce a full-bodied, complex, fruit-forward, and dry wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon grape owes most of its fame to its origins in the Bordeaux area of France. Traditionally, these wines have a strong crimson and black fruit flavor with a pronounced tannic component.
Because of its flavor profile and simplicity of production, Cabernet Sauvignon is a popular grape type among wine consumers and vintners both. The vines are very resilient, adapting to a wide range of temperatures and terroirs. They grow grapes with thick skins that are resistant to harsh conditions such as frost and hail.
Cabernet Sauvignon has large yields, which is a major plus for winemakers since it is one of the most popular red wines in the world.
