Why We're Buying
David Abreu is one of the most celebrated winemakers in California. The evidence: Abreu Therovilos. Debuted in 1987, the cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc-dominant blended has earned non-stop critical praise. Abreu only produces 500 cases per year, so investment opportunities go fast.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
As outstanding as all the Abreu wines are, if I had to choose one that stands apart from the others it would be Thorevilos. The 2008 Thorevilos is the most complete and deeply satisfying of Abreu’s 2008s because the balance of fruit and structure is so impeccable. The 2008 literally explodes onto the palate with masses of dark fruit, tar, licorice and smoke. There is a fleshiness and depth of the fruit here that separates the Thorevilos from the other 2008s. Layers of fruit build towards the massive, masculine finish. In 2008 Thorevilos is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 15% Petit Verdot.
