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 2005 Proprietary Red Madrona Ranch is probably dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, but there is significant Cabernet Franc in it as well, which is also the case for its sibling, the Thorevilos. The Madrona Ranch, of course, comes from the back foothills of St. Helena, heading toward Spring Mountain. A beautiful, dense opaque purple color and notes of espresso roast, chocolate, cedar wood, blackcurrants and forest floor are all present in this deep, layered, full-bodied beauty. Majestic and built like a skyscraper, with stunningly well-integrated acidity, wood, alcohol and tannin, this wine is still incredibly youthful at age 10 and promises to continue to evolve for at least another 15-25 years. It is a beauty and another great example of this terroir tucked away in the back streets of St. Helena.
