A wine of precision, nuance and tension, Accendo`s 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon continues to grow in bottle. There is a sense of translucent vibrancy in the 2014 that is especially admirable. Red and purplish-toned fruit, lavender, mint and crushed rocks are all beautifully delineated, but it is the wine`s shape and drive that I find most alluring today. This is a fabulous showing.
Produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon gives a deep garnet-purple color and leaps from the glass with notes of warm black currants and red currants preserves plus touches of sandalwood, cigar box, spice box, licorice and menthol and the faintest hints of forest floor and potpourri. Medium-bodied with a fantastic intensity of red and black fruits and accented with pepper, spice and earthy notions, it has a firm, chewy backbone and great freshness, finishing with lingering mineral notes.
In 2013, Bart and Daphne Araujo sold their notable Araujo Estate and Eisele Vineyard to embark on their next journey, the creation of Accendo Cellars. With the principles of producing wines with meticulous attention to detail characterized by past efforts, Accendo Cellars pays credit to an earlier era of the Napa Valley while sourcing grapes from Napa Valley’s finest vineyards. Utilizing the impeccable diversity of the Napa Valley, Accendo Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc both emphasize finesse and elegance.
