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.
A juicy and savory red with black fruit, pomace and toasted oak. Powerful and tannic. Muscular with amazing form. Full body, bright and beautiful fruit. Grabs your attention, yet subtle. Persistent. Try in 2020.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2012 Thorevilos is flamboyant, phenomenally concentrated, full-bodied, majestic and totally prodigious. It can be drunk young, but most readers will probably prefer to give it a few years of bottle age and consume it over the following 30+ years.
