Proprietor and vintner Trevor Sheehan started his journey to create a top wine collection when he became a winemaker ten years ago. His first wines were eight barrels of Chardonnay from the Beckstoffer Vineyard and Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain. Trevor carefully defined his own wine making style over the years drawing inspiration from fellow winemakers such as Nils Venge and Henri Jayer.
In collaboration with Master Sommelier Ian Cauble, best-known for his appearance in the recent documentaries "Somm" & "Into the Bottle." Method is a newly released brand focusing on Napa Valley Cabernet and other wines within the North Coast.
The diverse sources of this Cabernet Sauvignon exemplify the Napa Valley terroir. The strong, traditional bouquet layers notes of ripe black cherry, dark cassis, aromatic violets, and savory curry spices rooted by earthy undertones. With clean fruit throughout the palate, this medium-bodied wine has well-structured tannins balanced by a nuance of toffee and caramel oak influence.
The quality of a given wine is dependent upon the method of production involving viniculture, fermentation and aging. Method is a wine brand produced using optimal techniques at every stage of the process, delivering a classic, full-bodied expression of California wine.
