Ad Vinum

Sleeping Lady Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


Needs 4-6 hours at this point.
Vinious 97🤷🏼‍♂️
I opened this way too early, definitely a 2nd day with a big decant. This is a classically styled cabernet, you wouldn’t open a 2018 Ridge or Heitz, Scarecrow, Dominus etc etc,,,,
My bad
These are two fabulous wines from Chris Phelps. The 2018 in particular is brilliant. When I think of reference-point wines from Sleeping Lady, the Ad Vivum Cabernet is very high up on the list of wines that captures all of the finesse of this site.

Pop & pour was just acid & alcohol.

Sunshine Bay

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022

Blended from select estate vineyards in the Wairau Valley of New Zealand’s world famous Marlborough wine region, the tropical guava and passion fruit flavors of this Sauvignon Blanc are balanced perfectly with crisp acidity, stony minerality and citrus notes. This lively, fresh and dry wine is aged in 100% stainless steel tanks and is best enjoyed chilled. — 8 months ago

Chevey oliver's Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Chardonnay 2021

Delicious and gorgeous. Very pale yellow. Originally smells of toasted coconut and honeysuckle but morphs into a lightly buttered and salted popcorn. Tropical flavors with a briney edge. Bone dry, almost puckering. Very happy with this. — a year ago

Glenelly Estate

Lady May Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2015

The 2015 Glenelly Lady May is a very different wine to the 2013 I tried last year, this time a much more dense, structured iteration that has a lot more in common with young Bordeaux. Less flamboyant and perhaps even a little closed at the moment (indeed, it was only released this year by the estate), it requires generous decanting and even then takes some coaxing from the glass. When it emerges, it offers very classical left-bank aromas of dark cherry, blackcurrant, cedar, and graphite, with additional notes of cinnamon, Vimto and menthol. It spent two years ageing in new oak barrels. The palate is much more forthcoming, concentrated with a Port-like density and bright, saturated fruit. Totally harmonious are the tannins and acidity, and the finish really is rather long.

Once again, this is an utterly superb Stellenbosch Bordeaux blend - and with the 2015, with great ageing potential. It’s probably the closest imitation I’ve come across to date. I wouldn’t touch bottles for another five years.

100 Years a Lady Pinot Meunier

Medium to heavy bodied, with a dark and rich nose of cracked pepper, fresh leather, and deep violet floral notes, with Surprising amount of tannin in this, grippy ones. This is one of the most a-typical types of Munier I’ve had. Bigger, more structured. It grows on you as you sip along, with a spicy crunch, and notes of underripe plum, hints of fig and black olive, but a present freshness towards the end, with hints of rhubarb. — 9 months ago

Lady of Spain Cava Blend

N: really toasty, almonds, lemon, pear
P: brioche, baked ripe red apples, squeeze of lemon and salt. Toasty and leesy. Very tasty and Rich, but finishes crisp on the finish with hints of smoke and salt.
The hubby in particular loved this one.
