2013 Adamvs Cabernet Sauvignon Quintvs  (Napa Valley) 94

Tight, needs air and time before the freshness and purity of the fruits start to show their character. Full bodied, concentrated and deep, there is an elegance to the powerful tannins which says a lot about Howell Mountain fruit. Big, balanced and powerful, this needs to lay down before it’s civilized.

2013 Adamvs Cabernet Sauvignon  (Howell Mountain) 96

With a deep, dark color, the wine displays a beautiful nose of flowers, black fruit, a touch of oak, licorice and spice. The wine is a definite teeth stainer in all the right ways, finishing with a big blast of lush, fresh fruits, sweetness, length and purity.

Flamboyant nose of flowers, boysenberry, cocoa, vanilla and smoke on the nose pop with no effort. The wine has a soft, polished, fresh character, with ripe tannins and a smooth, lush, chocolate covered blackberry finish.

2012 Adamvs Cabernet Sauvignon Teres  (Napa Valley) 93

Lush fruits with a real sweetness to the blackberry center, polished, but persistent tannins giving you the backbone to age and a round, dark fruit filled, fresh finish. The wine was made from a blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot.

2012 Adamvs Cabernet Sauvignon  (Howell Mountain) 96

It is hard to believe this comes from 100% Howell Mountain fruit, because it is so lush, and polished. But it does. Using 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, planted high up, above the fog line at 2,000 feet, the wine is concentrated, with depth of flavor, complexity and richness. Inky in color, and still young, you can easily pop a cork and drink this today, or age it for a decade or more. This is the flagship wine from the Adams family. The wine is a blend of the 4 best barrels from the vintage.

2010 Adamvs Cabernet Sauvignon  (Howell Mountain) 92

The nose is on the floral side, made even better with the addition of fresh picked blackberries. Full boded, rich and fleshy, the finish delivers sweet and tart, black cherries.
