Palate

This FIRST edition of Ovid Loc. Cit. is both a singular and classic Cabernet Sauvignon. An incredible purity of fruit dominates the nose. Behind the many layers of fruit are lovely notes of tobacco, flint and violets. The weight of the wine fills the palate and makes a LUXURIAN T impression that lasts and lasts. To enjoy the 2010 Ovid Loc. Cit. wine young, we recommend DECANTING. It will also abundantly reward cellaring for 15-20 years

A term used in footnotes, Loc. Cit. is an abbreviation of the of the Latin phrase Loco Citato, which menas “in the place cited” or “from the same place.” All Ovid wines come from our estate, and the Loc. Cit. wine comes from a perennially distinctive part of the vineyard. In citing a work, an author credits the originator of an idea. In naming our wine Loc. Cit., we honor and give credit to this particular piece of ground. Only in some years is there sufficient fruit to make Loc. Cit. Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2010 was such a year. The first edition of Ovid Loc. Cit. is both a singular and classic Cabernet Sauvignon. It was a cooler vintage with measured RIPENING which yielded rich, colorful wines that are true reflections of where they come from. Future editions of Loc. Cit. will be created only in extraordinary years.
