Had a glass of this at the platinum tent at Bottle Rock this year (2019). Legit made my eyes rollback in pure, pure drinking pleasure.

WOTN for me - go look this bad boy up -old school Napa cab made a true master- I would decant at least 90 minutes and I would strap on your seatbelt because the road is about to start

Soft elegant fruit was totally balance - extraordinary bottle of wine - @David L thank you and your family for hosting my wife and me - this wine speaks in many octanes of the fun we had

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.

Showing frightfully young with a bit of aggressive wood tannins.
I dig the structure so think it has great future potential and will show much better in just a few years.
96+ pts.

The newest project from Bart and Daphne Araujo. They've reassembled most of their original team from Araujo, and it shows. This is one of those wines that defines "expensive Napa cab".
