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.

James Suckling

Phenomenal aromas of blackberries, fresh lavender, orange peel and hints of asphalt. Walnut shell, too. Full-bodied, firm and super structured with wonderful, chewy tannins and purity of fruit at the end. A joy to taste, even drink now, but needs time to come around. Try after 2023.

Wine Spectator

A stunner, with a seriously deep, dark core of warmed blackberry, black currant and fig paste flavors coursing along, laced with bay leaf, cassis bush, roasted alder, smoldering charcoal, cast iron and stone notes. The tarry structure will carry this through what should be a very slow evolution. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Best from 2024 through 2040.
