Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Deep, dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Great nose of cherries, strawberries, vanilla, cloves, honey, cedar, forest floor, curves, green pepper, spices, licorice, black-currant and black pepper.

Full bodied and elegant with nice legs and high acidity.

Dry and tart on the palate with cherries, strawberries, plums, pomegranate, black currants, earth, oak, vanilla, licorice, black pepper and herbs.

Sour finish with huge, angular tannins.

Still very young and austere, but would be great in 3 to 5 years, yet I still enjoyed it with my filet mignon.

Needs an hour to open up, which I didn't have, unfortunately.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

Bright fruit on the nose, deep fruit on the palate, and plenty of oak. Nice with a rack of lamb and ratatouille. Happy Valentine's!

Pretty nice bottle actually. Really mineral and dust driven. Redcurrant, red plum, and blueberry with some gravelly minerality. Almost opens up with air like a graves/pessac.. medium bodied but fleshy and smooth. Another solid bottle from the knights valley.

Consistent cab. It is closer to Napa style than Sonoma to be honest. Black fruits, chocolate and earthy.

Took a while to open up but loads of dark fruit and even grape skin taste.
