Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Deep purple in color with a short purplish/ reddish rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, black plums, black cherries, licorice, cedar, spices, tobacco leaf, vanilla, light mint, chocolates, coffee, mocha, light alcohol and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, vanilla, tobacco, oak, licorice, spices, light earth, chocolates, peppercorn and dark coffee.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very tasty Petite Sirah from California. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Drinks well right out of the bottle, and gets better as he opens up, and shows structure and complexity.

Still young and needs a few years in the bottle to mature properly and soften up, although I really enjoyed it as it is now.

Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years. Has a good potential to get to 94+ points.

Tangy and interesting, rich and Jammy.

Aged in French oak barrels (30% new). Organic.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$22.
