In 2008 The Adams family purchased the great White Cottage Ranch on Howell Mountain and hired legendary viticulturist Michael Wolf and Winemaker-Extraordinaire Phillipe Melka to develop a new venture. The 28 acre planted vineyards are located between 1600 and 2000 feet elevation. The winery and vineyard almost read like a love story – “It is a landscape of light and shadow, where mountain meadows, fir and oak forests, and lovingly tended vineyards reflect an honest rapport between man and nature. This landscape is the essence of ADAMVS, and the palette from which we craft our wines.” Winemaker Philippe Melka has reinvented the former White Cottage property on Howell Mountain into what I believe will become one of the best wines from the Napa Valley!

This wine offers pure blackberry aromas intertwined with subtle notes of anise, dark baker’s spice and forest floor. On the palate, ripe, brambly fruits are gracefully integrated with hints of spiced plum and loganberry. Refreshing acidity and firm tannins add balance and depth, leading to an elegant, cocoa-filled finish. It starts off at a fine point and expands to fill the palate with rich, silky texture.
