2016 Abreu "Thorevilos" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1539268 100 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Another perfect wine is the 2016 Thorevilos, and my notes on this beauty were laced with expletives. Full-bodied, mammoth-sized aromas and flavors of cassis, crushed flowers, dark chocolate, rare meat, and Asia spices all emerge from the glass. With incredible mid-palate depth, building tannins, and a seamless texture, it has flawless integration of its fruit, tannins, and acidity, no hard edges, and that rare mix of power and elegance.

99 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Phenomenal aromas of blackberries, fresh lavender, orange peel and hints of asphalt. Walnut shell, too. Full-bodied, firm and super structured with wonderful, chewy tannins and purity of fruit at the end. A joy to taste, even drink now, but needs time to come around. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Thorevilos has developed into a very sexy, racy wine. I don't remember a young Thorevilos being this approachable. Rose petal, mint, sage, dried flowers and mint are some of the many notes that open up with a bit of time in the glass. This is such a gorgeous and totally compelling wine. In a word: superb. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A stunner, with a seriously deep, dark core of warmed blackberry, black currant and fig paste flavors coursing along, laced with bay leaf, cassis bush, roasted alder, smoldering charcoal, cast iron and stone notes. The tarry structure will carry this through what should be a very slow evolution. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2021)
