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

WA95+
The 2010 Thorevilos seemed more tannic and backward than the 2009, which is somewhat of an anomaly in my tastings of these two vintages. Lots of espresso roast, white chocolate, blueberry, black raspberry and floral aromas jump from the glass, but the wine hits the palate with a crescendo of fruit, glycerin and body. Elevated tannins then kick in giving the wine a huge structure as well as a Bordeaux-like austerity. This wine requires 4-5 years of cellaring once released, and should evolve for more than three decades.
