Rich on the nose and smooth on the palate, our 2014 NOMAD Cabernet Sauvignon lands with a roar! The aromas of vanilla bean quickly develop into an intriguing combination of bacon fat, cocoa, and ginger root. Intense flavors of blueberry and black cherry dominate the palate. The smooth body and integrated oak, along with slightly higher acid than in previous years, gives a full and lush mouthfeel. We recommend decanting this wine.
