Reviews For This Wine


 
Wine Advocate | 96

The 2009 Cappella, which is nearly three-fourths Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and a tiny quantity of Merlot, possesses an inky/purple color and sweet notes of incense, violets, espresso beans, white chocolate and lots of creme de cassis and blackberries. There is plenty of glycerin, but unlike a lot of 2009s, despite relatively elevated tannins, the wine is open, showy and exuberant, which I consider to be a positive. Production was tiny, with only 250 cases produced. The 2009 should continue to drink well for 20-25 years.

About This Producer


If you adhere to the premise that great wine begins in the vineyard, then you have to admire the influence David Abreu has had on the ultra-premium wine industry. His impact began in the 1980s when he founded Abreu Vineyards after graduating from the Viticulture and Enology program at UC Davis. His reputation was enhanced through the success of his vineyard management company, and he became one of the most sought-after viticulture consultants. Famous clients include Blankiet, Staglin, Colgin, Bryant, Araujo and many others. His own wines reflect his expert vineyard management skills and innate ability to translate the grapes' excellence into stunning wine. Abreu also produces a proprietary red blend called Rothwell Hyde.
