Stewart Cellars Nomad Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Napa Valley, California

It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, cedar, earth, vanilla, espresso, cola, light herbs, chocolates, tobacco, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from Beckstoffer Vineyard. Rich, yet elegant with nice complexity. Extracted and fruit forward.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy and interesting.

This 9-year-old from the great 2014 vintage in Napa is drinking beautifully now.

Wine Enthusiasts 94 points.

This Single Vineyard is good right out of the bottle, and even better after 3 hours of airtime. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

I’ve had the 2009 a couple of years ago and loved it as well. Showing great consistency.

Good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

94 points.
