OVID 2018 Napa Valley Red Wine
98+ Points Jeb Dunnuck - 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.
96+ Points Vinous - 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.
Blend - 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot
The eponymous, flagship wine from OVID Napa Valley
Tasting Notes - Rich and enduring, the 2018 vintage finds exuberant expression in this OVID Napa Valley. Mulberry, bay leaf and colanotes entwined with aromas of licorice root, sage, sandal wood, cassis and fresh blackberry radiate from the glass. Powerful and complete, this wine’s poise and levity will exhilarate for decades to come
