(96 Points) The prodigious 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has slightly better availability (600 cases produced). It reveals classic textbook aromas of blackcurrant liqueur, tobacco leaf, licorice, baking spices and a touch of subtle toast in the background.

This small boutique operation has assembled some of Napa’s finest brains, including viticulturist David Abreu and well-known winemaking consultant Andy Erickson, to make these wines from rocky, red soils at 1,400 feet above Napa Valley. The vineyard was planted in 2000. They have 15 acres dedicated to Bordeaux varietals as well as some Syrah. Ovid sells most of their wines via a mailing list. eRobertParker.com #215, Oct 2014
