Product DescriptionWine Tasting Notes
In 2000, we planted Block 5 in extremely volcanic clay loam along the ridgeline of our property. The sparse resources defining this block always posed a challenge to experimentation. But, as if farming under a magnifying glass, this transparency taught us how to best farm the site.
The 2019 Red Experiment B5.9 focuses on a singular block of the OVID estate. Pure notes of rhubarb, raspberry pie and boysenberry are countered by delightful hints of orange rind, iron filings and flint. The incredible power and density so inherent in this site unfurls across the palate with beautifully burnished tannins - the joys of many lessons learned and captured in vibrant, radiant expression.
