"A rich, powerful yet elegant and graceful effort that delivers a tight beam of red and dark berry fruit notes amid cedary oak, dusty crushed rock and earth flavors and textures. Ends up like chewing on a basket of fruit and pebbles. Drink now through

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Nomad hits the palate with a mélange of exotic dark stone fruits, plums, mocha, spices and leather. Sweet, powerful and intense, this full-throttle Cabernet offers superb intensity and textural richness. There is not much left to the imagination in a super-expressive Cabernet that will please readers who like racy, seamless wines. -- Antonio Galloni"
"At Stewart Cellars, it's the quest that drives us. The quest for the ideal site, for consistently lush fruit, for the like-minded grower who labors towards the perfect expression of a given vintage. We build lasting relationships with vineyard owners and together with the help of our consulting winemaker Paul Hobbs we test the limits of what an exceptional patch of soul can yield. Our requirement for the resulting win is simple: it must deliver beyond expectation every time.
Stewart Cellars begins and ends with family. We are dedicated to making something tangible and enduring, something expressive of each person's gifts. Stewart was started in the year 2000 by Anne and Michael Stewart. Michael Stewart is very much the entrepreneur. Anne is the food and wine connoisseur who loves introducing people to our wines. James Stewart manages the day to day operations of Stewart Cellars and thrives on the complexity of running all aspects of the business. Caroline Stewart is honing her skills as she follows the world's harvest seasons preparing herself to take the Stewart family into the future as winemaker." --James Stewart
