2014 Ovid Cabernet Sauvignon Napa

Share on Facebook

2014 was the third consecutive year of drought in Napa Valley. We received almost no rain

in all of 2013 and little rain in 2014 until the storms in February. They provided a bit of

respite and relief but were immediately followed by unusually warm temperatures that ushered in an early bud break. A warm, dry growing season followed until August, when

temperatures rose just a bit – a harbinger of good things to come. Harvest began early and

went quickly. Ours started on September 4th and ended in an exuberant flurry on the 24th, just a day before a locally heavy rain and hailstorm.

The resulting 2014 Ovid Napa Valley wine shares many characteristics with OVID wines from the previous two drought vintages. It is a wine possessing both the profound heft and tremendous focus of the 2013 vintage. And it offers dense aromatics of mulberry, dark chocolate, blackberry and tobacco that literally spring from the glass –

reminiscent of the vintage two years prior. sunshine defined all three of these vintages and we hope you can taste that radiant joy in this rich and resonant wine.
