6 bottles in stock

97 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Sleeping Lady Vineyard is deep garnet-purple in color. It leaps from the glass with blackcurrant jelly, warm plums and mulberries notes plus suggestions of black raspberries, roses, tar, anise and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, the palate is very tight-knit, with firm, ripe, grainy tannins and lively acidity supporting the layers upon layers of nuances, finishing very long and wonderfully minerally.

Outer quote mark The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Sleeping Lady Vineyard is every bit as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. A big, statuesque wine, the 2018 impresses with its energy and vibrancy, both of which are great signs for the future. Today, the 2018 is a bit reticent, but the pedigree is there. Blackberry, mocha, gravel, spice, menthol and lavender begin to emerge, but only gradually. The 2018 is a magical wine from Chris Phelps. Don't miss it. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2022)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark From the great vineyard site on the western flanks of the Mayacamas, this is an old-world styled wine, with robust structure and power. Cassis and violets are found in abundance, with dense yet cohesive and nearly silky tannins, the oak well-integrated and adding spice and weight. *Cellar Selection* (VB) Inner quote mark (11/2021)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The dense purple-hued 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Sleeping Lady Vineyard checks in as 100% varietal and is from a noteworthy site in Yountville. Pretty cassis, violet, menthol, and sappy herb notes give way to a full-bodied, beautifully balanced Cabernet with ripe tannins and a great, chalky mineral-like component on the finish. 95+ Inner quote mark (1/2021)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Gorgeous aromas of crushed blackberries and black raspberries. Currants, too. Purity of fruit. Full, layered and not heavy at all. Pleasantly austere at the end with tension and focus. Just beginning to open. Inner quote mark (3/2022)
