99 Points - limited                                                                    
Ovid makes one of Napa Valley's most sought after Cabernets. Limited.

99 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "More blue fruits as well as blackcurrants, leafy tobacco, chocolate, candied flowers, and baking spices all emerge from the 2018
Hexameter, and it’s full-bodied, with an incredibly pure, seamless texture, polished tannins, and one heck of a great, great finish. While this is unquestionably a mountain wine, with a building sense of minerality, it has a rare sense of elegance and purity, flawless balance, and is just a heavenly, singular wine."

98 Points Robert Parker: "Blended of 55% Cabernet Franc, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Merlot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored Hexameter leaps from the glass with bold Black Forest cake, cassis and redcurrant jelly scents with suggestions of candied violets, pencil lead, oolong tea and cumin seed with a touch of cigar box. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals loads of red and black fruit layers beautifully laced with exotic spices and floral fragrances, framed by super ripe, super fine-grained tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long...."With the Cabernet Franc being so beautiful, it was hard for us to ignore,” said Ovid’s winemaker, Austin Peterson, of the winery’s concept behind the creation of Hexameter. In 2006 Ovid was mainly Cabernet Franc; after that it was decided that in exceptional years for the grape, they would make Hexameter. “Hexameter is another expression of the estate," Peterson says. “Both Ovid and Hexameter express the site in very compelling ways."

Winemaker Notes:  The unrushed extravagance of the 2016 growing season finds full expression in the Ovid Hexameter. Opulent notes of Rainier cherry, violets, fresh blackberry, and plum mingle serenely with aromas of dark chocolate, molasses and pencil shavings. Round and resonant, this wine captures the undeniable deliciousness of this spectacular vintage.
