Accendo Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2016
Accendo Cellars is the Araujo Family’s wine brand, made by two generations working together with their longstanding team to honor the winemaking and family heritage of Napa Valley. Accendo Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon is an uber blend utilizing impeccable fruit from superior vineyard sites, fashioned in a winemaking style that emphasizes elegance, balance, freshness and finesse. Accessible at a young age, yet with the concentration and complexity required for extended cellaring, Accendo Cabernet Sauvignon is a quintessential expression of Napa Valley terroir. 2016 in Napa Valley was viewed by growers and vintners alike as a ‘vintage of exceptional quality’. The wine was aged for 22 months in new and used French oak barrels. Reflecting the outstanding vintage, the captivating nose of this wine shows dark and brooding aromas of cassis, plum and blackberry, touched by exotic notes of lavender, anise, pencil lead and leather. On the palate, rich flavors of ripe black fruits are wrapped around a firm structure of fine-grained tannins, minerality and beautiful freshness that carry on into the long, satisfying finish.
