Densely textured and robust in black cherry compote and plum, this is a blockbuster, age-worthy red from the Oakville site, its tannins forceful and youthfully grippy. Nutmeg, cedar and clove season the rich fruit and toasted oak. Enjoy 2021-2030.

Deep purple-black colored, the 2016 Nomad Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon slides sensuously out of the glass with slowly building notes of blackberry preserves, crushed blueberries and warm cassis with touches of wood smoke, sandalwood, wilted roses, charcuterie and underbrush plus a hint of dried mint. The full-bodied palate exudes hedonistic exotic spice and black fruit preserves layers with a velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long and layered.
