The eponymous, flagship wine from OVID Napa Valley. This wine captures the feeling of gratitude with a rich and luxuriant expression. Brooding with fresh notes of mulberry, cassis, anise, bay leaf, blackberry and licorice, this red wine will tell the tale of a most remarkable vintage for many years to come.

OVID Napa Valley represents 15 acres of California’s most distinctive terroir, located atop Pritchard Hill at an elevation of 1,500 feet. Here, we seek harmonic balance between ‘tension & intention’ through wines that balance warmth and generosity with nerve, power and finesse.

 

2017 Vintage Report:

The 2017 Vintage was not a typical year in Napa Valley. Enduring rains ended the long drought, and in May, hail challenged the freshly growing shoots. Fortuitously we ushered the grapes into our cellar just before the fires began to rage. We met each of these challenges with careful planning, deliberate decisions and collaborative solidarity. We are especially grateful for our amazing vineyard team, who sowed cover crops to soak up the winter rains and later applied water for the vines to thrive through the summer heat spikes. Thanks to all of these efforts, the 2017 vintage results in wine of the highest standard, possibly some of the best wines OVID has produced to date.
