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.
Rich and enduring, the 2018 vintage finds exuberant expression in this OVID Napa Valley. Mulberry, bay leaf and cola notes entwined with aromas of liquorice root, sage, sandalwood, cassis and fresh blackberry radiate from the glass. Powerful and complete, this wine’s poise and levity will exhilarate for decades to come.
Jeb Dunnuck 98+ Points... 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.
