Texturally, the wine is fresh and silky, with an underlying core of dense tannic structure that adds both tension and balance. Will age for decades, decanting 4-5 hours will open the wine to enjoy now. Pair with richly flavored Beef Bourgignon, mushroom risotto, roasted duck, or rich cheeses.

2016 AD VIVUM CABERNET SAUVIGNON OWC – Original Wood Case 6-pack

96WE | 96 POINTS WINE ENTHUSIAST “A tiny production from winemaker Chris Phelps of Inglenook, this wine is softly round and richly structured, with a backbone of silky tannin and integrated oak. Black cherry and toffee mocha stand out most prominently around savory characteristics of sage, graphite and pencil. This is a lovely, elegant and 100% varietal wine.” WINE ENTHUSIAST 96 POINTS 

95JD | 95 POINTS JEB DUNNUCK, “From an up-and-coming vineyard that’s producing some spectacular wines these days, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sleeping Lady Vineyard offers terrific crème de cassis, violets, graphite, and tobacco notes as well as a full-bodied, seamless, impeccably balanced style on the palate. It shows the purity and elegance of the vintage yet has plenty of oomph. Based on 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 18 months in 70% new oak, drink it any time over the coming two decades.” JEB DUNNUCK 95 POINTS
