xxx 138 | MORRELL FINE WINE AND SPIRITS V ISIT u S AT MORRELLWINE .c OM cALL 800.96.WINES (800.969.4637) T hese passionate and talented spirits, who lack the funds to invest in winery space and equipment, are now able to take advantage of the best the industry has to offer without a major financial burden. What's more, the wines they are making have created an entirely new level of quality wine at a remarkable price. That's where John l ockwood of e nfield comes in. e nfield hit the scene a number of years ago and has been turning heads ever since with a stunning selection of artisanal wines that represent amazing value. John, who cut his teeth working at Failla starting in 2008, searches through the lesser-known vineyards of California to find the best possible fruit and unique terroir. The fact that this fruit costs significantly less than the average Napa source means that the consumer also reaps the benefits of his work. l ocated in Sonoma, the vineyards at Fort Ross Seaview can be found just seven miles from the coast, and have been thought by many to be too cold to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon of importance, yet that's exactly what John has done. This is not your average California Cabernet; in fact you may think e urope before New World when tasting it, and that's exactly how John wants it. ✦ e nfield Cabernet Sauvignon Water Horse Ridge Fort Ross Seaview 2015 $64 "... Refreshing, with aromas of flowers and herbs. It's a tribute to the freshness of classic Bordeaux, with none of the lush flavors associated with California cabernet." Eric Asimov (1703316) T H e Cu STOM C R u SH a d V a NT a G e The introduction of custom crush facilities throughout California has created an entirely new breed of winemaker that was never been possible before.
