Winemaker Notes: Rich and enduring, the 2018 vintage finds exuberant expression in this OVID Napa Valley. Mulberry, bay leaf and cola notes entwined with aromas of licorice root, sage, sandalwood, cassis, and fresh blackberry radiate from the glass. Powerful and complete, this wine's poise and levity will exhilarate for decades to come. Blend: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot
Jeb Dunnuck 98 Points Also seeing less time on skins and a shorter maceration, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, with the rest Petit Verdot. 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. Rating: 98+
This Pritchard Hill estate makes stupendous wines now, with a subtle, tightly formed nature showing in the tight, linear tannins and blackberry, new leather, and tar character. 1970s style to it. Solid. Drink or hold.
Vinous 96 Points The 2018 Ovid is pretty tightly wound today. In fact, it seems to have closed quite a bit since I last tasted it about a year ago. That won't be an issue in time, but it is something readers should keep in mind. There's terrific depth and resonance, and all the 2018 needs are cellaring. Best after 2025. Rating: 96+
Wine Spectator 94 Points Packed nicely with dark plum, cassis, and raspberry puree flavors, this is vivid and direct, with a graphite edge harnessing the fruit through the finish. There's a strong cast iron spine running from start to finish, giving this some serious depth for the cellar. A late echo of sweet bay leaf adds the finishing touch. Patience required. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. Best from 2022 through 2038.Pickup Only
