Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, oak, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, spices, chocolates coffee, peppercorn, earth, vegetables, acetone, smoke, graphite, spices and bitter herbs.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, blueberries, currants, vanilla, earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, green herbs, cloves, light alcohol, chocolates, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Medium finish with medium tannins and spices.

This is a drinkable Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Not fully balanced, yet enjoyable with food. Showing mild complexity with a nice, spicy mouthfeel.

Needs an hour to open up properly and show some tannins.

Definitely not worth $25 ( I've had better under $15). Might be way too young, I might need to give it another shot in a few years.

I paired it with heavy appetizers.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

83 points.

$25.

Smooth. But not complex and not worth aging

Soft tannins, silky mouthfeel with hints of cherries, chocolate and vanilla. Pairs well with gamier meat like London broil or venison.

How could people not love it? Ripe fruit, vanilla, plush slightly sweet midpalette.

Thought I’d continue down the supermarket aisle. This is a very reasonable but utterly plain cuvée. Nothing special. But pleasant enough!

Blackberry and blueberry notes, not super oaky, good dryness. Served with charcutters.
