Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark inky in color, almost black with a dark purple rim.

Dark berries on the nose with black pepper,minerality ,green pepper and spices.

Medium bodied and harsh on the palate with blackberries, currants, peppercorn and some cloves.

Medium long finish with spices and full tannins.

Needs a while to open up.
Not more than ok, but still balanced and drinkable.

It is what it is...ok. Not spectacular but average. I think for a quick gotta grab something for a family dinner this would be acceptable. But for a special meal or something to take to a party you can do better. Flavors are on the spicy side with hints of dark cherry in the after taste. Good but on the flat side.

Not bad for 9 bucks. Plum, dark cherry, cocoa, and a tad smoky. Still haven't found a Malbec that I've fallen in love with though.

Great fruit. Easy to drink, as should be a Malbec.

An amazingly silky smooth Malbec, this wine has thick chewy tannins and dark raspberry and strawberry fruits that linger in the finish.
