2017 abreu, rothwell hyde, napa valley
Why We're Buying
Abreu Rothwell Hyde is a proprietary blend that highlights the style and skill of legendary winemaker David Abreu. Responsible for wines at some of Napa Valley's finest estates, Abreu continues making some of the most popular and expensive wines in St. Helena.
The 2017 Rothwell Hyde is an attractive wine to drink over the near and medium term. In the best year, Rothwell Hyde can approach the single-vineyard wines, but in 2017 the gap is pretty wide, as is to be expected in a vintage with significant challenges. Readers will find a mid-weight Cabernet laced with pretty red/purplish fruit lifted by floral overtones. (AG)
