2008 Ovid Red Blend

2008 Ovid Red Blend

Vinous 96pts: "One of the highlights among the early vintages, the 2008 Ovid is the first wine in this tasting that is complete in its balance of aromatics, fruit, acidity and tannin. New oak also appears better judged here than in the first releases. Blackberry jam, spice, exotic spices, black cherry, menthol, licorice and lavender are all nicely delineated throughout, with hints of crème de cassis and crushed rocks that add freshness as the wine starts to open up in the glass. "


Wine Spectator 93pts: "Rich and fleshy, with ripe plum, wild berry, mineral, cedar and anise flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, graceful and elegant, ending with a delicate aftertaste and a firm, minerally finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2012 through 2023."

Winemaker's Notes: "The 2008 OVID Napa Valley is imbued with the sense of accumulation and abundance characteristic of the vintage. Deep, rich layers of red fruit, Cloves, blueberry, sage and ginger abound, intensely expressed. Yet the wine retains the pleasing balance that has always been at the heart of our winemaking. Its steady structure , combined with smoothly polished tannins, make for a wine that is both immediately appealing and one that will reward cellaring."
