2016 Accendo Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
A wine with a Latin name? Count us in. Accendo means to enflame or illuminate. Kidding aside, if you are a fan of Napa Valley, Accendo is a new name that you need to know. Accendo is the new spare-no-expense project of Bart and Daphne Araujo, having sold their namesake winery in 2013. Nigel Kinsman and Françoise Peschon, former winemakers of Araujo, are back at the helm, with Michel Rolland as consulting enologist, and Steve Matthiasson as viticulturalist.
