Though OVID Napa Valley is a consistently powerful, stoic, sculpted wine with recognizable characteristics across vintages, it also encapsulates our openness as winegrowers to new ideas. We believe to become set in ones ways or dependent on formula is to lose touch with the nature of wine itself. In that spirit, the goal of blending OVID Napa Valley is about understanding this place, not showcasing Cabernet Sauvignon. Our aim is to listen to the individual lots of wines each year after harvest and about six months of barrel aging. We look for common themes, compelling flavors, intriguing ideas and then explore each pathway to see how it plays out. Thus, the final wine exists at a meeting point between the desires of the vineyard, vintage and our own sense of the wines ideal form.
