Tasting Notes

WCI100

There is so much depth in color in this wine, it looks like it was just released! Blueberry, boysenberry jam, vanilla, licorice, chocolate, truffle, earth and smoke scream from the glass. With the concentration of motor oil, coupled with the grace of a ballerina, there is not one hair out of place. Ostentatious, yet refined, the wine fills your mouth and paints your palate with the intense purity of perfectly ripe, polished fruit. This is a benchmark wine for California Cabernet Sauvignon.

WA100

The classic 2002 Thorevilos, which comes from the white tufa volcanic ash soils of this site, exhibits notes of barbecue smoke, bouquet garni, incense, Christmas fruitcake and gobs of blue and black fruits. It is voluptuously textured and full-bodied, with sweet tannin as well as a flawless integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol. Both of these wines are tour de force performances from David Abreu and Brad Grimes. They appear set for 25 to perhaps 50 or more years of cellaring. If you can find them - buy them!
