Ovid Winery Proprietary Red Napa Valley 2008, 1.5L (WA93, ST93, WS93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Ovid Winery Proprietary Red Napa Valley

1.5L

Vintage: 2008
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA93, ST93, WS93
Rated 93 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2008 Ovid (68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot) is a slightly more restrained and marginally lighter version of the 2007. Still, it is a delicious, full-throttle, multi-dimensional wine, with loads of red, blue and black fruits and hints of camphor and graphite as well as forest floor notes in a medium-bodied, restrained, but impressively authoritative style to drink over the next 15 or more years.` -- 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.`
