Another superstar of the vintage is the 2011 Thorevilos. Abreu and Grimes clearly crop-thinned in this vintage, and did heroic work in the vineyard to eliminate any possibility of tainted grapes getting in to the flavors. Sensational purity of blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with hints of camphor and violets are found in this 2011, which has a much higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon than usual as the Petit Verdot was decimated by spring frost. Deep, serious, rich and one of the most concentrated 2011s I tasted, it should age effortlessly for 20-25 years, and should never close down given its precociousness and relatively evolved showing from barrel.
