Winemaker Notes

Dense purple in color with sweet crème de cassis notes intermixed with mocha, espresso bean, vanilla and graphite. This full-bodied, rich and layered estate Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for 15-20 years.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Quintvs (88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Merlot) is made from five separate blocks of vines. It exhibits a dense purple color along with sweet crème de cassis notes intermixed with mocha, espresso bean, vanilla and graphite. Full-bodied, rich and layered, this impressive effort should drink well for 15-20 years.

ADAMVS Winery Image
Denise and Stephen Adams discovered the idyllic ADAMVS property in 2008. In its mosaic of five vineyard sites, iron-rich red soils, ideal elevations and diversity of vineyard exposures, they saw the perfect convergence of geology and geography. To realize the estate’s promise, and their goal of establishing a new benchmark for excellence on Howell Mountain, they gathered together a team that includes viticulturist Michael Wolf and winemaker Philippe Melka.

Howell Mountain Wine

Napa Valley, California

View all products

Today Cabernet Sauvignon is the star of this part of Napa’s rugged, eastern hills, but Zinfandel was responsible for giving the Howell Mountain growing area its original fame in the late 1800s.

Winemaking in Howell Mountain was abandoned during Prohibition, and wasn’t reawakened until the arrival of Randy Dunn, a talented winemaker famous for the success of Caymus in the 1970s and 1980s. In the early eighties, he set his sights on the Napa hills and subsequently astonished the wine world with a Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Shortly thereafter Howell Mountain became officially recognized as the first sub-region of Napa Valley (1983).

With vineyards at 1,400 to 2,000 feet in elevation, they predominantly sit above the fog line but the days in Howell Mountain remain cooler than those in the heart of the valley, giving the grapes a bit more time on the vine.

The Howell Mountain AVA includes 1,000 acres of vineyards interspersed by forestlands in the Vaca Mountains. The soils, shallow and infertile with good drainage, are volcanic ash and red clay and produce highly concentrated berries with thick skins. The resulting wines are full of structure and potential to age.

Today Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petite Sirah thrive in this sub-appellation, as well as its founding variety, Zinfandel.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
