Stewart Nomad Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
Deep purple-black in color, the 2016 Nomad Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III is just a tad youthfully reticent to begin, soon unfurling to offer a glorious array of warm black cherries, black raspberries and cassis scents with touches of lilacs, fragrant earth, ground pepper and tree bark. The palate is full-bodied with a rock-solid backbone of firm, grainy tannins and background freshness supporting the generous, earth-laced black fruits, finishing very long and earthy.
This Rutherford vineyard provides brightness and depth to the proceedings here-a mix of shy floral tones and fresh currant. High-toned flavors have a backbone of soft rounded caramel and velvety texture, finishing in cinnamon toast and bittersweet chocolate. Enjoy 2021-2030.
