Top Notes For
"Odedi"

A beautiful, gentle ruby/ brick in color with a light brick/ orange rim.

On the nose, raspberries, plums, unripe cherries, cranberries, light wood, light vanilla, licorice, herbs, spices, alcohol and peppercorn.

Medium-bodied with high acidity, smooth and elegant, with nice legs.

Tart on the palate with plums, sour cherries, pomagranates, strawberries, oak, green olives, light vanilla, leather, licorice, vegetables and black pepper.

Medium plus on the finish, with fine, round tannins, spices and tart cranberries.

A nice cabernet from the Thrace an Valley in Bulgaria.
Seems like it past its peak and probably better when fresh.
A bit unbalanced and not too good to be had by itself. Better with food, though.

It has more of a South American light Syrah feel, then old world Cabernet. Needed one hour to open up. Grapes are 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

89 Wine Enthusiast.

14% alcohol by volume.

A pleasant surprise from Bulgaria. Not a big wine and if I didn't know better, I would have called it a cool climate cab done right. Tannins are light and pleasantly approachable. Cherry, menthol, raspberry. Nice finish. Could see this being agreeable to a wide range of wine drinkers.

Total Wine - $12 - recommended by salesperson. Will rate when I try it. Just opened this one. Smooth finish but, strong tasting. Not thrilled with this one. Fruity and nut taste. Taste like a red Chardonnay.

Lovely fruity blackberry notes. Slightly spicy earthy. Very nice. Better after a couple of days.
