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
The 2010 Cappella, ( 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot) reveals a dense purple color, and even greater aromatic and flavor dimensions than the 2009. Notes of sweet creme de cassis, coffee bean, graphite, white chocolate and forest floor are followed by an intense, full-bodied, luxuriously textured wine that has plenty of tannin, but it is sweet and enrobed by sumptuous fruit and glycerin. This fabulous 2010 is one of the superstars of the vintage. It should continue to evolve for 25-30 years.
