The 2017 Abreu Thorevilos Proprietary Red is a wine that exemplifies the essence of its remarkable terroir on the outskirts of St. Helena and Howell Mountain. Dense, powerful, and explosive, this wine is a true testament to the richness of the vintage and the inherent strength of the vineyard site. On the palate, it delivers an intense and memorable experience, with layers of flavors that captivate the senses. The wine's character is further accentuated by swathes of tannins that enshroud its potent core, promising great aging potential. The deep, dark color hints at its concentration and depth. A rush of mineral and savory-infused overtones adds an exclamation point to this extraordinary wine, making it an absolute marvel for those fortunate enough to experience it. The 2017 Abreu Thorevilos Proprietary Red is a profound expression of the winemaker's artistry and the unique attributes of the Thorevilos vineyard.

"Even better than the awesome 2016, Abreu's 2017 Thorevilos Proprietary Red takes those familiar piney-herbal notes and combines them with redder, more vibrant fruit flavors, evocative of cherries and raspberries. Yet even with this greater freshness, the wine remains full-bodied, concentrated and velvety in feel, with a tremendously long finish. This is undeniably tannic, but ripe, and it should have a long, graceful evolution in the cellar."

"The 2017 Thorevilos is one of those rare wines that conveys both power and elegance. Today, the tannins are a bit imposing, but that's Thorevilos. What impresses most is the wine's delineation and clarity. All the elements are so impeccably balanced. Inky dark fruit, mocha, licorice, spice and leather are some of the many notes that pulse through the 2017. Best of all, the 2017 is not as brooding as some other recent vintages, and it will be ready to deliver pleasure with just a few years in bottle. It is a mind-blowing wine in every way."
