The 2001 Thorevilos is another example of what may well be Napa Valley's version of Ausone, and one of the single greatest vineyard sites in California. One could say this is world-class, but it's really all-universe. A tour de force in winemaking, with notes of blueberry liqueur intermixed with subtle white chocolate, espresso roast, cassis, blackberry and perfumed, floral notes, it is full-bodied, with great flavor purity, a skyscraper-like texture, and a remarkable finish, with a seamless integration of all component parts. This is extraordinary wine that everyone who loves wine should at least taste once or twice in their lifetime. Both of these wines are adolescents, and probably won't peak for another 5-8 years and keep for 30-40.Drink Dates: 2016-2056
