Top Notes For
"Odedi"

This is a tasty and elegant Chardonnay from Carneros.

Dry on the palate with medium acidity. Buttery and elegant.

Showing citrus, oak, vanilla, spices, overripe pears, yellow apples, light earth and limes.

Nice length on the finish with limes and black pepper.

Spicy and interesting. Good by itself or with food.

This oaky Chardonnay is very good right out of the bottle, but needs an hour to chill and relax. Still young and would be nice to revisit it in a couple of years.

I paired it with a beautiful view on the lake.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$37.

"Odedi"

Pale lemon in color.

Strong oaky nose of citrus, cedar, toast, vanilla, spices, golden apples and white pepper.

Full bodied, buttery and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with toasted oak, vanilla, spices, apples and black pepper.

Spicy finish with limes.

This is a young Oaky Chardonnay from Carneros. Big, bold and fruit forward.

Needs a couple of years in the bottle to mature. I had the 2018 recently, and it was much better so its worth waiting for a bit.

A little much for me at this point, but it was a big hit at the table.

A good quality wine that needs time to chillax.
