"Ovide" 2009

K Vintners

Earthy. Think dried Mediterranean herbs, black olive. Complex and satisfying, full and rich. For my father, Robert Ovide. - Charles Smith

Reviews

  • "94 points. Cellar Selection. This will be the last Ovide from En Cerise grapes. It's an explosion of cherry and milk chocolate flavors, remaining firm with expressive highlights of olive, earth and herb. It is two-thirds Cabernet and one-third Syrah, a perfect melding of the two grapes. Arguably, one gets better aromatics than Charles Smith, and the wine flavors deliver on their initial promise." (Wine Enthusiast)
  • "93 points. Supple, expansive and distinctive for the black olive, barbecue smoke and licorice overtones that weave through the dark, ripe blueberry and blackberry flavors. Finishes with hints of basalt and dark spices. Nicely put together, with a harmonious finish." (Wine Spectator)
