2015 OVID Napa Valley Syrah
Our Syrah is truly hand-crafted in tiny batches, and our non-interventionist methodology has been steadily evolving since we made the first OVID Syrah in 2009. We fully destemmed the miniscule quantity of 2015 fruit into a tiny open top tank. Following spontaneous fermentation, it was aged in three Burgundian French oak barrels without racking until bottling in June 2017.
The 2015 OVID Syrah is opaque in appearance. Aromas of jasmine, vanilla bean, black cherry, blueberry, fresh violets, rose peal, wet stone, coffee bean and forest floor envelop you. There is compelling richness and tension within this wine that should play out beautifully for years to come.
