(cabernet sauvignon with 30% cabernet franc, 8% merlot and 4% petit verdot): Dark ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, cassis, shoe polish, minerals, menthol and dusty earth. Suave and claret-like, even a bit strict in the early going, conveying a strong crushed stone character that gives the wine a powerful spine. Tightly wound and youthfully clenched, but already showing considerable personality. Lay this down.

The 2009 Ovid is stunningly beautiful. At times it shows a little more depth, power and richness than the Hexameter, but both wines are compelling. Endless layers of fruit saturate the palate as this rich, intense wine conquers the heart and intellect. A totally vivid wine, the 2009 is even more impressive from bottle than it was from barrel. Over the time I followed it, the 2009 gained finesse and elegance in the glass, which bodes quite well for the future. Intense graphite, crushed rocks and pencil shaving nuances add energy to the polished, huge finish. The blend is 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

Gorgeous aromas, plump and generous, lead to ripe, rich, juicy plum and black cherry flavors that show touches of cedar, fresh earth, black licorice and spice. Gains momentum and finesse, ending with a long, subtle, detailed finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
