2018 Ovid Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend 750ml
Winery Notes- Ovid Napa Valley is a singular, dynamic and continuous experiment in terroir, nestled at an elevation of 1,500 feet on a secluded mountaintop in the western reaches of Pritchard Hill. Here, iron-rich volcanic soils, abundant sunshine and chaparral flora alchemize to reveal focused, long-lived wines that celebrate their source. Our four estate wines are sourced from our organically farmed fifteen acre vineyard, planted in one-acre blocks with rootstock and clonal combinations of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Syrah.

VINOUS REVIEW: The 2018 Ovid is a very delicate, elegant wine, certainly relative to the wines that have been made here in the past. Silky and perfumed, with tons of grace, the 2018 is super-expressive today. Bright floral notes, red cherry, plum and spice are all beautifully delineated. The 2018 is a wine of energy and tension. It will be interesting to see how it develops in bottle and if it gains more body. Today, it is very much lithe in build. The 2018 has also just been bottled, and these wines often blossom over time. I am super-impressed by the precision here
JEB DUNNUCK REVIEW: Also seeing less time on skins and a shorter maceration, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc , with the rest Petit Verdot. Killer notes of blackcurrants, toasted spice, lead pencil, and loamy soil all emerge from this full-bodied beauty. With ripe, building tannins, an expansive, layered, textured, and flat-out stunning purity of fruit, this remarkable mountain Cabernet Sauvignon will benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age and cruise for 30 years or more in cold cellars
