A juicy and savory red with black fruit, pomace and toasted oak. Powerful and tannic. Muscular with amazing form. Full body, bright and beautiful fruit. Grabs your attention, yet subtle. Persistent. Try in 2020.
Once again, the 2012 Thorevilos struts its enormous potential. A deep purple color is accompanied by wonderfully sweet blueberry, blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with notes of licorice, spring flowers and forest floor. Dense, full-bodied and multidimensional, this killer wine is about as good as any blend of Bordeaux varietals can be. Given the vintage’s precociousness, soft tannins and low acidity, this sensational 2012 should drink well for 25-30 years.
