Winemaker Notes

Floral aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle and citrus blossoms add exotic notes to the tropical fruit aromas of guava, green mango, passion fruit and litchi, nuanced by touches of lemon curd, vanilla bean and spicy ginger. In the mouth, a firm and fine line of acidity provides brightness to the fleshy mid palate, while a lingering minerality, reminiscent of the sea, extends the long finish. A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Musque and Semillon, the wine is refreshing, persistent, restrained and sophisticated.

James Suckling
The aromas of dried pineapple and limes is so intense and perfumed. Full-bodied, deep and layered with beautiful, bright acidity and a linear and bright finish. Shows intention and precision. Very exciting. Dash of semillon in this. Drink now.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc is 14% Sémillon and 4% Musque clone, with the rest made up of Sauvignon Blanc. The nose offers up expressive green guava, fresh pineapple and green apple scents with hints of honeysuckle, white peaches and chalk dust plus a waft of coriander seed. Medium-bodied with a lovely satiny texture, the palate delivers mouth-filling tropical and stone fruit flavors with great freshness and a compelling chalkiness to the finish.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Mixes power with grace, offering supple Key lime and passion fruit flavors that are mouthwatering and intense, set on a smooth, sleek frame, with lingering details of lemon verbena and freshly grated ginger.

Accendo Cellars, California
Accendo Cellars Napa Valley  Winery Image

Bart and Daphne have always said their best wine has yet to be made.

This was their philosophy as the proprietors of Araujo Estate and stewards of the historic Eisele Vineyard, and it is their guiding principle today with Accendo Cellars, the Napa Valley winegrowing venture founded in 2013. Inspired by the revolutionary Napa Valley wines of the 1950s, ‘60s and ‘70s, Accendo pays homage to an earlier era and marks a beginning of a promising new paradigm: to source grapes from some of the finest vineyard sites and terroir in Napa Valley; to make a wine of balance and restraint in the style of Napa Valley’s past wines; and to produce this wine with the commitment, energy and meticulous attention to detail that have characterized their past efforts.

They are grateful to be joined by their daughter, Jaime Araujo Bézian, and son, Greg Araujo, as well as a small team of professionals they have worked with for many years, people who share their passion and, most importantly, their values. Applying what they know collectively about grape growing and winemaking, Bart and Daphne's aim is to create a world-class wine that expresses ecological diversity and focused stewardship.

For years Napa Valley has nurtured and humbled them in ways they could never have imagined. It is the hope that Accendo will shine a new light on this magical place they call home.

One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism, the Napa Valley was responsible for bringing worldwide recognition to California winemaking. In the 1960s, a few key wine families settled the area and hedged their bets on the valley's world-class winemaking potential—and they were right.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980s, when producers scooped up vineyard lands and planted vines throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, and today Napa is home to hundreds of producers ranging from boutique to corporate. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Napa whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that claim specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil. Farthest south and coolest from the influence of the San Pablo Bay is Carneros, followed by Coombsville to its northeast and then Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford. Above those are the warm St. Helena and the valley's newest and hottest AVA, Calistoga. These areas follow the valley floor and are known generally for creating rich, dense, complex and smooth reds with good aging potential. The mountain sub appellations, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs, include Stags Leap District, Atlas Peak, Chiles Valley (farther east), Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain District and Diamond Mountain District. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from a lot of time in the bottle to evolve and soften.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
