Winemaker Notes

Opaquely purple, the wine has huge, complex aromatics with dark fruit notes of blackberry and plum bolstered by finely integrated oak spice. With air, dark caramel and whiffs of smoke emerge on the nose along with hints of classic lead pencil. The powerful core of supple tannins at the heart of the wine gives it massive structure seamlessly wrapped in the plush flesh of concentrated, velvety ripeness.

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Nomad is exotic, explosive and totally head-spinning. In this vintage, the Nomad is 100% Las Piedras fruit, and the pedigree of that site comes through in spades. Waves of dark fruit, new leather, licorice, smoke and tar saturate the palate as this full-bodied, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon shows off its extroverted personality. Despite its huge body the Nomad nevertheless possesses super balance all the way to the inky, resonant finish. I can’t wait to see how the 2010 ages.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Offers a powerful expression of Cabernet, with a wonderful sense of finesse and refinement. The core flavors of dark berry, currant, anise and licorice are intense and persistent, yet the interplay of flavors and textural subtleties add to the wine's intrigue.

Michael Stewart came to the Napa Valley in 1999, intent on making high-quality wines that meet the expectations Napa Valley wines demand. His first venture was the purchase of Juliana Vineyards, a 1,000 acre vineyards in the Napa Valley appellation. He also sought out the best vineyards, the best grapes, and finally the world-renowned oenologist Paul Hobbs to start the Stewart brand. Today, 13 years after Michael came to Napa Valley, his son, James and daughter, Caroline have joined the family business

Napa Valley

Red Wine

View all wine

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, and in a short span of time, Napa Valley is a relative newcomer in the world of prestigious red wine regions. While the 1960s brought a few determined growers to the valley, by the 1970s Napa Valley already had shown the world its ability to compete head-to-head with the esteemed region of Bordeaux. The victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris, followed by Robert Parker’s 100-point perfect score awarded to the Groth 1985 Cabernet Sauvignon brought plenty of acclaim to the valley.

Though Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly still dominates Napa Valley in every way, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and enjoying plenty of recognition, other red varieties certainly thrive here as well. Important but often overlooked include Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded for single varietal wines or for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel still exists in the valley and in its mountain appellations, representing an important historical stronghold for the region. Pinot noir can be produced but mainly in the cooler southern parts of the valley close to the San Pablo Bay.

What makes Napa such an amazing place for the production of red wines? Mainly it is a combination of ideal weather patterns and incredible soil variations. A balance of hot days and cool nights from the cool moist air of the San Pablo Bay or elevation, or both, allows even and slow ripening of its grapes. Furthermore the valley and its more mountainous sub appellations claim over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—all ideal for world-class red wine production.
