Ad Vivum Napa Valley

“Ad Vivum was the first single-vineyard wine to emerge from a unique name: Ad infers movement toward a goal with intention. Vivum is the synthesis of two Latin words — vivere (to live) and vinum (wine). Ad Vivum, is, therefore, where wine and life meet.”
–Chris Phelps

98 points — “Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts with open-knit expressive scents of black cherry compote, warm cassis, and cinnamon toast with nuances of clove oil, roses, and dark chocolate. The Full-bodied palate is rich, plush, seamless, layered, long, and decadent.
