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

WA94–96
Another superstar of the vintage is the 2011 Thorevilos. Abreu and Grimes clearly crop-thinned in this vintage, and did heroic work in the vineyard to eliminate any possibility of tainted grapes getting in to the flavors. Sensational purity of blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with hints of camphor and violets are found in this 2011, which has a much higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon than usual as the Petit Verdot was decimated by spring frost. Deep, serious, rich and one of the most concentrated 2011s I tasted, it should age effortlessly for 20-25 years, and should never close down given its precociousness and relatively evolved showing from barrel.
