To realize the complexity that defines the finest Cabernet Sauvignons, the Adamvs estate is a mosaic of five vineyard sites, ranging in elevation from 1,500 to 2,000 feet. Of their 28-planted acres, 25 are Cabernet Sauvignon, with nine hand-selected clones spread out over an array of exposures and elevations. Legendary viticulturist Michael Wolf stewards every vineyard block to accentuate its strengths. Though they embrace innovation, we also believe that there is no substitute for experience and the human touch. Farmed with integrity and passion, every one of their Organic and Biodynamic® certified vines is hand-tended by our vineyard team a minimum of seven times a season.
JEB DUNNUCK 95 POINTS - "Leading off the 2016s and fresher and slightly more elegant than the 2015, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon TERES offers a complex perfume of flowery camphor, violets, and blue fruits as well as a medium to full-bodied, refined, seamless mouthfeel that just begs to be drunk. From 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 70% new French oak, it can be drunk today or cellared for 15-20 years."
ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 92+ POINTS - "Aged for 21 months in 55% new French oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon TERES is deep garnet-black in color and opens with expressive notes of creme de cassis, mulberries, baked plums and spice cake with wafts of potpourri, eucalyptus and espresso. The palate is full-bodied and firm with ripe, grainy tannins and a lively line lifting the densely packed fruit, finishing on a minty note. 1,100 cases produced."
ANTONIO GALLONI 92 POINTS - "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Teres is a gorgeous entry-level wine from Adamvs. Pliant, succulent and inviting, with no hard edges and terrific fruit presence, the 2016 has a lot to offer. Plum, blackberry jam, spice and menthol all run through this racy, succulent Cabernet Sauvignon."
