Ovid Vineyards

I 420 meters højde, på det højeste bjerg i det vestlige Pritchard Hill, med den mest fantastiske udsigt over Napa Valley, vil du finde en lille og meget elegant ejendom - Ovid Vineyards. Dette er en af de mest spændende af de nye vinerier i Napa Valley. Det er grundlagt og ejet af softwareprogramøren og  forretningspartnerne Mark Nelson og Dana Johnson. De 6,10 hektar vinstokke blev plantet på den barske jomfruelige land af den velkendte viticulturist David Abreu, og den berømte winemaker Andy Erickson(Screaming Eagle) i 2000. Den første høst var 2005, og med ultralav udbytte, udover deres estate Cab laver de også små partier af såkaldte Experiment vine, i 2008 var deres produktion på kun 600 kasser.
Consulting winemaker er Michel Rolland.
Årgang 2005 som var deres første årgang var udsolgt til mailinglistekunder inden den blev frigivet.

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.

"Their exercise with a Cabernet Franc-dominated wine, the 2013 Hexameter (a 500-case blend of 64% Cabernet Franc, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot) is pushing perfection. Its beautiful notes of acacia flowers, forest floor, blackberries and blueberries interwoven with touches of barrique, licorice and spice are followed by an even more intense and complex palate with silky, ripe tannins, opulent, full-bodied texture, and beautiful purity. A “wow” wine in so many different aspects, this multi-dimensional classic should age beautifully for 20 or more years." Robert Parker 99 points
