Ad Vivum, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 2014
A wonderful confluence of people, events and circumstances created AD VIVUM. The story is 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. The aromatic and flavor profile of crème de cassis, ultra-dark black cherry, and raspberry, and the unique fine-grained tannins that coat the teeth are sure testimony that their collaboration is a success. 14.8% alc. Only 270 cases produced.
