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.
The complexity of 2019 QUINTVS tells the story of our diverse estate vineyard. The ethereal experience of this exquisite wine with aromas of lush cherry, raspberry, and strawberry, is enhanced by notes of cacao powder. Beautifully balanced acidity gives the wine a fresh, juicy vibrancy that carries the flavors to a bright finish. QUINTVS has a dense midpalate, with abundant firm, yet ripe round tannins. A long plush finish invites you back for another taste. Drink now or cellar.
