The name pays homage to the Roman poet, Ovid, who is quoted on the front label of this wine: “Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it there will be a fish.”
Intense cherry tobacco aromas and dark, ripe black fruit are immediately present on the nose, followed by sweet spice, nutmeg and a touch of oak. The wine is full and rich, while showing remarkable acidity thanks to the near-perfect ripening conditions in 2015. There is a definite black cherry character on the palate that rounds off the fine, silky tannins and plush, ripe fruit finish.
