The deep purple-black colored 2016 Nomad Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Dr. Crane is a little youthfully subdued to begin, opening out to reveal tantalizing glimpses of baked redcurrants, cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and mulberries with nuances of crushed rocks, tilled black soil and violets. Full-bodied and sporting layers of tightly wound black fruits and earth-inspired flavors, it has a firm, fine-grained frame and a very long, multifaceted finish. A stunning expression of Dr. Crane!

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon NOMAD Beckstoffer Dr. Crane Vineyard is also fleshy and flamboyant, with full-bodied notes of blueberries, crème de cassis, dried tobacco, and spice. As with the Missouri Hopper release, it’s weightless and seamless on the palate, and just a joy to drink. I followed this bottle for two days, and it never failed to impress, so despite its upfront appeal, I suspect it’s going to evolve gracefully as well.
This is a tart, tangy and tense red from the legendary vineyard, soft and velvety lush on the midpalate. Caramelized oak cradles baked cherry and cranberry, the layers complex and lengthy with seasonings of clove and nutmeg. *Cellar Selection* (VB)
A flicker of savory adds lift and energy to the waves of warmed plum, cassis and cherry preserves that glide through. The structure is polished, the finish long, with an anise note checking in at the end. (JM)
