The 2014 Ovid has really come together nicely since I last tasted it a few months ago. From the beginning, the 2014 has had a slightly raw, unevolved feel that has gradually resolved itself, allowing the wine's pure power and gravitas to come through. Plush, dark and somewhat somber, the 2014 shows the clear effects of the drought in its inward personality. I would prefer to give the 2014 at least another few years in the cellar.
Each year, from small lots of fruit grown in the red rocky soil of our vineyard on Pritchard Hill, we choose just the best barrels and blend them together to create the new vintage of Ovid Napa Valley. Ovid is a blend of the four Bordeaux varietals grown here: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, varying in proportion from year to year but always eloquently conveying this special place. - Winery
