Our flagship, ADAMVS showcases the opulent texture and sophistication that makes the wines of Howell Mountain so compelling. An estate wine of depth and elegance, ADAMVS truly captures the essence of our volcanic mountain terroir. Deeply aromatic with notes of cherries, plums, cassis, crushed rocks, menthol and tobacco, the wine exhibits both graceful finesse and power.
