TN: 2005 Abreu Cabernet Sauvignon Thorevilos (USA, California, Napa Valley)

  • 2005 Abreu Cabernet Sauvignon Thorevilos - USA, California, Napa Valley (11/5/2014)
    Brought this to dinner at Morton’s to go head-to-head against the 2005 Futo. Decanted both but both were pretty much ready to go right out of the gate. I thought was going to smash the Futo, bit it didn’t. Which is not to say that it was a disappointment. It wasn’t. It was dark, sophisticated, and captivating: the wine equivalent of Angelina Jolie. Penetrating notes of cassis, black cherries, wet soil, fig paste, sweet tobacco, dark chocolate, and vanilla. Lithe on palate with a long profound finish. Initially low in acidity, but it picked up as the night wore on. Just a gorgeous wine that has an incredibly long life ahead of it. (94 pts.)
