Displaying Howell Mountain’s signature concentration and complexity, QUINTVS is a rigorous barrel selection of the five distinct soil types found at ADAMVS. From the powdery gray volcanic ash to the iron-rich red clay Howell Mountain is most noted for, QUINTVS artfully represents the soil’s expression in the wine.
