If you are familiar with Beckstoffer’s Las Piedras Vineyard, then you will surely recognize this wine! Ripe and bright, our 2017 NOMAD Las Piedras Cabernet Sauvignon kicks off with aromas of ripe plum, strawberry cake, and crème brûlée. Flavors of peaches and cream, mixed berry pie, and browned butter envelop the palate, while the soft, velvety tannins frame the mouth-feel. The silky, creamy finish is long and lingering, just the way we like it! We recommend drinking this wine now through 2030.
