ADAMVS

TOP

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.


2013 QUINTVS
The 2013 QUINTVS embodies a brooding and dark fruit nuanced energy. Laced with aromas of blackberries, plums, forest floor, wet river rocks, and clay with a dusting of cocoa, the wine is structured, concentrated, refined and elegant. The juxtaposition between the plethora of fruit and savory attributes reminds us of both the diversity of our soils and the Old World. This full-bodied, rich and layered should drink well for 15-20 years.
