Our flagship ADAMVS Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the opulent texture and sophistication that make the wines of Howell Mountain so compelling. An estate wine of depth and elegance, ADAMVS is a meticulous barrel selection crafted around a core of fruit from our prized red soils and sun-filled exposures.
A rigorous selection of the very finest estate lots, ADAMVS exhibits deep fruit and mountain floral aromas, blackberries, blueberries, graphite, mulberries and white flowers on the palate, and a broad velvety finish that lingers long into the evening. This layered; full-bodied, multidimensional 2012 should continue to drink beautifully for two decades or more.
