NOMAD 2005
Chilean Red Wine
• NOMAD is a fascinating blend of red wines made with four varieties coming from three vineyards in two areas. Young California winemaker, Jessica Tomei, produced this wine after completing the Davis Viticulture and Enology program. She worked her first harvest in California in 2000; then at Antinori in Italy in 2001; Mondavi 2002; and from 2003 to 2006 worked in Chile, managing 100 hectares of vineyard. 2004 was the first vintage of NOMAD, made by winemakers living without a home in Chile.

The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carmenere, and Merlot, from Chile’s Rapel and Isla de Maipo, from vineyards in Cachapoal, Requinua and Alto Cachapoal. NOMAD is a deep colored wine with a distinctive Carmenere scent, medium to full body, and juicy acidity with ripe flavor, all textured by nicely tamed tannins. This is wine for drinking, but it will also do well with bottle age.
