Ovid Winery Proprietary Red Napa Valley 2007, 750mL (WA97, ST95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Ovid Winery Proprietary Red Napa Valley

750mL

Vintage: 2007
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA97, ST95
Rated 97 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2007 is a dense bluish purple blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot. It displays beautifully perfumed blue and black fruits intermixed with some pen ink, acacia flowers, and black raspberries. Gorgeous, subtle smoke and a floral character follow through into the sweet tannins of this full-bodied, opulent wine, which builds incrementally and has a gloriously luxurious texture. There`s not one trace of astringency to this seamlessly wrought wine, which is the liquid equivalent of haute couture. Already drinking well, it should continue to evolve for two decades or more.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `This operation has elicited considerable acclaim, given the talent involved. First of all is the terroir, a stunning location high on Pritchard Hill, a neighborhood filled with Napa superstars, such as Colgin, Bryant Family, Continuum, David Arthur, and Del Dotto. Add to that the level of talent - winemaker Andy Erickson, consultant Michel Rolland, viticulturalist David Abreu - and the result is essentially a think-tank of world-class quality. Yields are tiny (15 acres in vine), and the emphasis here is on putting together a blend with a high dosage of Cabernet Franc in the final assemblage. For that reason, the wines probably need slightly more time to strut their stuff. It has been my experience that Cabernet Franc needs several years to show complexity aromatically and put on weight in the bottle.`
