Hexameter is only made in Ovid Estate’s best vintages and winemaker Austin Peterson makes that call. Last year the 2013 Hexameter Red was in my Top 5 favorites of wines released in 2016 and this 2014 is another phenomenal offering. Like the 2013 vintage, "The 2014 Hexameter is opulent and robust with vibrant fruit, reflecting its early and generous growing season. It features 51% of the compelling Cabernet Franc of this vintage, interwoven with 37% lush Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% elegant Merlot. Notes of fresh boysenberry, black raspberry & rhubarb pie combine with violet candy, sage and cardamom to create a bold wine with a profound sense of balance.” As you may know, Ovid Winery recently sold last month to Silver Oak Winery. The entire team is staying on board which is a positive for the winery. I highly recommend trying a bottle or two if you didn’t get a chance to try the 2013 last release season.
