The Winery

Abreu Vineyards

David Abreu has been associated with many top Napa Valley vineyards like Bryant Family, Harlan Estate, and even Screaming Eagle. Abreu founded his own vineyard management company in 1980, working with at the time winemaker Richard Forman. They would frequently travel to Bordeaux to gain knowledge on vineyard management, farming techniques, and to further develop their winemaking philosophy. Abreu honed his skills for Bordelais farming style in the New World. In 1986, Abreu purchased his first vine which was the start of his own winery. David Abreu is a perfectionist with his clients’ and his own wine, and it shows in his purely world-class wines.

Tasting Notes

WA98
As outstanding as all the Abreu wines are, if I had to choose one that stands apart from the others it would be Thorevilos. The 2008 Thorevilos is the most complete and deeply satisfying of Abreu’s 2008s because the balance of fruit and structure is so impeccable. The 2008 literally explodes onto the palate with masses of dark fruit, tar, licorice and smoke. There is a fleshiness and depth of the fruit here that separates the Thorevilos from the other 2008s. Layers of fruit build towards the massive, masculine finish. In 2008 Thorevilos is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 15% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038.
