I was pretty impressed by this especially considering it was an '11. Wouldn't have guessed that. #pritchardhill #napavalley

Haven’t posted for a while, but celebrating a strong week at work. Ovid just plain delivers. Shows great after 45 min decant. Pairing with some sourdough and herbed olive oil— great way to start the weekend! Relocated to Minneapolis- let me know if in the area to share a glass!

Fourth flight. I've had many good 2011's so I don't feel I'm biased, but when compared to the rest this wine was the consensus this was the worst of the bunch. It's not a bad wine, lean, red fruits, short clipped finish.

Wonderful after 3 hours in the decanter. Just brilliant fruit and winemaking. 2011 is strong in Pritchard Hill. This is rich, powerful, yet with a crisp acidity that just balances all that bright red and deep blue fruits. Great stuff.

Drinks like an Ovid but doesn't have the complexity of the 2012.
