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.
The ADAMVS Estate Cabernet Sauvignon embodies the pinnacle of our farming and winemaking efforts in each vintage. The 2016 may be our most soulful expression to date with profoundly complex aromatics of wild blackberry, graphite, baking spice, and fresh leather. Perched on a tightrope of lively acidity and focused, fine-grain tannins—the palate balances precise structure with lush, dark fruit and freshness through the long and distinctive finish. Drink now decanted, or witness the evolutionover the next three decades or more.
