2011 Abreu "Las Posadas" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (Previously $400)

SKU #1256856 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2011 Howell Mountain is nearly as thrilling from bottle as it was from barrel. Blackberry jam, grilled herbs, mocha, espresso, violets and savory herbs are laced together in an exotic tapestry of aromas, flavors and textures. Intense, wild and powerful throughout, the Howell Mountain shows just how strong 2011 was in a handful of very select spots where farming was diligent. What a fabulous wine this is. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Proprietary Red Howell Mountain exhibits good red and black fruit, roasted meat, sweet forest floor and wet gravel characteristics, undeniable minerality, medium to full body and beautiful ripeness, purity and depth. Although it is the least concentrated of Abreu’s 2011s, it is still a big wine as well as one of the vintage’s most successful efforts. Drink it over the next decade. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

K&L Notes

About Abreu: "Growing up, Napa Valley was David Abreu's playground as well as his classroom. Born into a family of ranchers, he spent the better part of his youth working in Napa's original vineyards. Over time, David's sense of what makes a site stand out—why one vineyard makes great wine and another's is just good—was sharpened beyond the ordinary. Eventually, intuition and experience led him to four exceptional vineyard properties: Madrona Ranch, Cappella, Las Posadas, and Thorevilos. He planned and planted each one. And with an uncompromising—some might say insane—commitment to quality, he and his crew farm them to perfection. Alongside Brad Grimes, a chef turned winemaker, he whittles one hundred barrels down to just 12,000 bottles of single-site Cabernet blends. You could call it passion beyond reason. And you may be right."
