Wine Advocate 91 points - A strong effort from a Yountville vineyard known as the Sleeping Lady, the well-made, medium to full-bodied 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of creme de cassis, mulberries and dark cherries. With sweet tannin, subtle wood and foresty undertones, this attractive, complex, Bordeaux-styled Cabernet should drink well for 15-20 years. (Oct 2013)

A wonderful confluence of people, events and circumstances created AD VIVUM. Ours is a story of an amazing vineyard, a meticulous farmer, an experienced and open-minded winemaker, years of experiments, and great timing. Chris Phelps, a renowned Napa Valley winemaker, is a man who knows great fruit when he tastes it, and he has an intimate understanding of how to coax superb wine from great grapes. Larry Bettinelli, a fifth-generation farmer and a scrupulous vineyard manager, is a man driven to do whatever it takes to grow the highest quality Cabernet Sauvignon possible. Larry and Chris have worked together for many years, discussing trellising, sun exposure and ripeness levels for Cabernet and Merlot grapes from Larry’s various properties. Chris made experimental wines to test their theories. In 2005 Larry walked Chris through the sloping benchland at the Bettinelli Family Sleeping Lady Vineyard in Yountville. More experiments followed, and more small lots of wine were made. As Chris began working with Sleeping Lady Cabernet, he knew he had found something truly significant. Sleeping Lady, which sits just south of Dominus, was turning out to be more than just a very good site. The site rivals the best vineyard ground that exists in Napa Valley, and it consistently produces grapes with a unique purity and intensity of aroma, as well as a beautifully distinctive flavor. Chris had found that elusive alchemy of site, climate, plant and soil that can produce extraordinary grapes. The aromatic and flavor profile of creme de cassis, ultra-dark black cherry, and raspberry, and the unique fine-grained tannins that coat the teeth are sure testimony that the experiments were a success. Life brought us this remarkable vineyard and its surroundings, and from it, we bring you this wine of great character and craft. Please embrace the AD VIVUM, where wine and life meet.
