Introducing the exquisite 2016 Accendo Cabernet Sauvignon, a true gem from the heart of California's North Coast region. This red wine showcases the exceptional craftsmanship of the renowned Accendo winery, known for their commitment to producing wines of finesse and elegance.

In the glass, the Accendo Cabernet Sauvignon displays a deep garnet-purple color, enticing the senses with its rich and alluring appearance. The nose is greeted with a symphony of aromas, including dark berries, dark chocolate, and hints of hazelnuts. As the wine opens up, notes of sage, rosemary, and lavender begin to emerge, adding depth and complexity.

On the palate, this Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a solid center with a full-bodied weight that is beautifully balanced. The flavors of ripe blackcurrants, black cherries, and roasted herbs dance on the tongue, accompanied by a subtle graphite edge that keeps the wine honest. The palate is further enhanced by vibrant black, blue, and red fruits, creating a symphony of flavors that is both rich and caressing.

The Accendo Cabernet Sauvignon is a true testament to the art of winemaking. A blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot, this wine was expertly crafted and aged in French oak barrels. The result is a wine of exceptional quality, with wonderfully ripe, fine-grained tannins and beautiful freshness.

This wine has received high acclaim from critics, with scores of 97 and 98 from Decanter and Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, respectively. Noted wine critic James Suckling also awarded it a score of 97, praising its tight precision and beautiful balance. Wine Spectator and Vinous also heaped praise upon this stunning Cabernet Sauvignon, further solidifying its status as a true standout in the world of wine.

The 2016 Accendo Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable now, but it will undoubtedly continue to evolve and improve with age. We recommend enjoying this wine after 2022 to fully experience its potential. Whether you choose to savor it now or lay it down in your cellar, the Accendo Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine that is sure to kindle, illuminate, and inflame your senses.
