2016 K Vintners ‘Ovide’ Cabernet Sauvignon-Syrah Jack’s Vineyard Walla Walla Valley
Here is the K Ovide Cabernet-Syrah, a single-vineyard from Walla Walla offering dedicated to Charles’ father Robert Ovide. Charles knows only one speed, and this rich, blueberry-rich 75% Cab blend effortlessly cruises along at Mach One in your glass, bringing forth effusive dusky black fruit, a plate of blackberry pie, graphite like a snapped pencil, and mint chocolate flavors that just roll on and on. Reminiscent of mythical blend of an Adelaide Hills Cab-Shiraz and a Margaux-like Bordeaux; whatever it is, it’s really delicious! Dense, expressive and fun!
