    The classic 2002 Thorevilos, which comes from the white tufa volcanic ash soils of this site, exhibits notes of barbecue smoke, bouquet garni, incense, Christmas fruitcake and gobs of blue and black fruits. It is voluptuously textured and full-bodied, with sweet tannin as well as a flawless integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol. Both of these wines are tour de force performances from David Abreu and Brad Grimes. They appear set for 25 to perhaps 50 or more years of cellaring. If you can find them - buy them!

    Decanted the wine for 4 hours - WOW. This Abreu is structurally deep and complex, rich in tannins. The key is to decant the wine for 3 to 4 hours to open it up. It's a big wine, with a big finish that lasts a full minute in the mouth and holds to the bottom of the bottle. With a great wine like this one the biggest mistakes you could make is to pop the cork and start to pour - the wine,reaches the full 100 points given to it by RP, if its properly decanted. The Abreu Thorevilos 2002 is a real treat, one of the best wines I have ever tasted. I liked it so much I bought 2 more bottles.

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.
