Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, black currants, plums, bing cherries, red candy, mediterranean spices, wood, herbs, tobacco, licorice, vanilla, black tea, earth, leather, dark coffee, spices and black pepper. A very aromatic nose.

Full bodied and bold with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, coffee, oak, earth, vanilla, vinaigrette, tobacco leaf, peppercorn, spices, light bitter herbs, red chili powder and cloves.

Medium finish with soft tannins and tart cherries.

This is a nice a Zinfandel from California. A good quality wine and a good food wine.

Drinking nicely already, but would probably be better in a year or two.

Needs 2 hours to open up properly and remove some of the acidity.

The nose here is much nicer than the 2015 and more complex, but right now, I like the 2015 better.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

100% Zinfandel grapes were aged for 10 months in French and American oak barrels.

13.9% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$28.

Binz Wines Fox Creek Vineyard Zinfandel 2015, Shenandoah Valley, California

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity on the nose with blackberries, bing cherries, oak, licorice, vanilla, chocolates, dark coffee, spices and peppercorn.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, spices, peppercorn, dark coffee, tobacco leaf, earth and herbs.

Long finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a nice Zinfandel from the Sierra Foothills in California. Drinking nicely now and showing nice complexity with a great nose. Spicy and tangy on the mid palate.

Good by itself or with food. A good quality wine with a soft mouthfeel.

Needs 2 hours to open up properly as it is too acidic right out of the bottle, so be patient.

Will age nicely in the next 3 to 5 years.

A good sipping wine to have all by itself.

I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.

100% Zinfandel grapes were aged for 19 months in French and American oak barrels.

14.2% alcohol by volume.
