Just a mere 250 cases only of this great wine are made, considered to be David Abreu’s finest wine. And that is saying something when you consider the quality of the likes of his Madrona Ranch and Capella wines.

“…about as good as it gets for Bordeaux varietals in Napa...or anywhere else in the world…Simply put, these are some of the most beautiful wines being made in Napa Valley today.” Robert Parker

“…comes close to perfection, a beautifully ripe, weighty, but with a European, almost Bordeaux-like structural profile. The sensational nose of acacia flowers intermixed with blueberry liqueur, blackberries, espresso roast, and crushed rock is provocative and intense. The wine is very full-bodied, has a terrific, layered mouthfeel, sensational equilibrium for a wine of such massive concentration, and a staggering finish. This is about as extraordinary a glass of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon as one could hope to find.” Robert Parker

“As a set of wines, it is hard to surpass the four cuvees from the estate vineyards of David Abreu. As I have written many times in the past, all of these wines are truly world-class efforts that stand alongside proprietary red wines made from Bordeaux varietals from any appellation in the world. Abreu has two vineyards in and around the town of St. Helena, the Madrona Ranch at the base of Spring Mountain and the Cappella, which is further toward the town. Ironically, his Thorevilos is not part of any AVA, but might be one of the three or four finest vineyards in all of Napa Valley.

“All of these wines are amazing efforts, but for me, there is something about the Thorevilos Vineyard that boggles my mind.” Robert Parker
