Accendo Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2017

$360

A beauty, with lush, velvety and seductive waves of creamed plum, blackberry reduction and warmed fig compote notes, seamlessly inlaid with singed alder, loam and humus details. Shows a flicker of menthol at the very end as everything melds together. A big wine, without any of the telltale hiccups of the vintage. Best from 2022 through 2040. 712 cases made.
