About Method 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Master Sommelier Ian Cauble whose fame arose from his being featured in the documentaries "Somm" and "Into The Bottle" where his wine knowledge, focus, energy and attention to detail were exceptional, is bringing that praiseworthy intensity to producing fine wine. Teaming up with Vintner, Trevor Sheehan, who spent nearly a decade learning from the master winemakers of Burgundy and Bordeaux before returning to craft expressive California wines, they've created Method. Sourcing outstanding grapes from a single vineyard west of Rt. 29 in Oak Knoll, Napa Valley, this Cab has a small percentage of Petite Verdot blended in and shows rich flavors and a bold expression. The California Wine Advisors rated this "Outstanding" with a a 94 point score and Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 91 points saying "This wine is dark in color, with an enticing violet aroma, possibly from the 15% Petit Verdot in the mix. Spicy clove, black pepper and woody cedar form a full-bodied construct upon which a depth of tannin presides—a powerful statement that mellows in the glass. Additional notes of dried herb, cassis and currant unfold with time." It's a wine that will drink beautifully now and will continue to age gracefully over the next 4-8 years. Best of all it's on SALE at Over 30% off the regular price by the case.
