2007 Ovid Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L)

SKU #1071485 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 is a dense bluish purple blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot. It displays beautifully perfumed blue and black fruits intermixed with some pen ink, acacia flowers, and black raspberries. Gorgeous, subtle smoke and a floral character follow through into the sweet tannins of this full-bodied, opulent wine, which builds incrementally and has a gloriously luxurious texture. There’s not one trace of astringency to this seamlessly wrought wine, which is the liquid equivalent of haute couture. Already drinking well, it should continue to evolve for two decades or more. This operation has elicited considerable acclaim, given the talent involved. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good red-ruby. Deep, complex aromas of black and red raspberry, minerals and menthol. Big, lush and aromatic, with a texture of liquid silk supported by strong graphite minerality. The wine's medicinal reserve promises a slow evolution in bottle. Finishes impressively long, with very suave tannins that coat the teeth. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2010)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark red-ruby. Black raspberry, graphite minerality and oak-derived spices and caramel on the slightly liqueur-like nose, complemented by hints of earth, tobacco and molten tropical dark chocolate. Wonderfully plush, sweet and deep, showing an almost exotic character to its fruit and still in need of time to absorb some more of its baby fat; there's a Right Bank opulence here that's compelling. But this huge, chewy wine has plenty of dusty tannic support for longer aging. Displays a slight warmth on the back end but the horizontal, spreading finish goes on and on. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2017)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This shows uncommon depth and elegance to its range of flavors. Rich and layered, with tiers of mocha-laced currant, blackberry, sage, mineral and graphite, at points firm and at others supple, ending with touches of tobacco, sage and espresso. (JL) Inner quote mark (11/2010)

K&L Notes
