2014 Accendo Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon (Bart and Daphne Araujo)

Napa Valley

$345.00 per Bottle


5 Bottles




"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." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #234

"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."

"Second vintage of Bart and Daphne Araujo's new adventure but very little 2013 was produced. Warm nose and round and herbal. Very broad and flattering but with excellent acidity. All the fruit comes from Oak Knoll, farmed by Steve Matthiasson. Long. Very marked acidity on the end." JancisRobinson.com
