2017 OVID Napa Valley Syrah
Our Syrah is hand-crafted in tiny batches, and our non-interventionist methodology has been steadily evolving since we made the first OVID Syrah in 2009. We included a portion of whole-clusters in our tiny open-top tank to add some structure and intrigue. Following spontaneous fermentation, the wine was aged in Burgundian French oak barrels with minimal racking until bottling in June.
Expansive and vibrant, the 2017 OVID Syrah envelops you with mouth-watering aromas of Bing cherry, cocoa, fresh blueberry and cola that leap from the glass, followed by heady notes of rose petals and jasmine. This vibrant and enduring wine will delight for decades to come.
