Description Build A Case!
Adamvs was was formed by Denise Adams and Stephen Adams in 2008, when they purchased a parcel of vines on Howell Mountain. They were already experienced vineyard owners as they already owned 2 vineyards in the Right bank of Bordeaux , Chateau Fonplegade in St. Emilion and Chateau LEnclos in Pomerol , as well as a property in Healdsburg. Adamvs, takes its name from a play on words. It's similar to the couples last name of Adams, and it's also Latin for born from the red earth. Also, as a tip, don't get confused by the spelling, the name of the winery is pronounced as Adam Us.

What we know of as Adamvs today had been a working vineyard for quite a while. Previously, it was known as White Cottage. Once Densie and Stephane Adams took control of the property, they brought in Philippe Melka to consult and Michael Wolf to help in the vineyards.

Denise and Stephen Adams, who have done so much in the wine world, especially with regard to their resurrection of the well known St. Emilion estate, Fonplgade, and more recently, L'Enclos in Pomerol, fell in love with this property on the hillsides of Howell Mountain. The up and coming viticulturist Michael Wolf is responsible for the vineyards, and Philippe Melka is the consulting winemaker working with the chief architect, Jason Valenti. The vineyard includes five separate parcels of iron rich red soils with diverse geology.

Tasting Notes: The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Tres (around 1,400 cases produced) possesses amazing purity as well as dense blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with acacia flowers, new oak, graphite and a haunting floral note. Full bodied, opulent and majestic, it should drink well for 15-20 years.
