Intense and rich on the palate and nose, our 2013 NOMAD Cabernet Sauvignon has loads of spice! It starts with a subtle shortbread aroma that develops into cinnamon, cocoa, and ginger. Flavors of boysenberry and dried plum then dominate the palate. The smooth body, integrated oak, and structured tannins are evident, giving a full and bold mouthfeel. We recommend decanting this wine.
