Top Notes For
"Odedi"

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendocino County.

Showing red and black fruits with wood, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, earth, leather, bell pepper, tobacco, light vegetables, violets and light forest floor.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and fruit forward, with a touch of earth notes. Interesting and spicy. Nicely balanced and elegant. Showing a lovely nose at this point.

Feels like a Right Bank Bordeaux, actually.

This 9 year old is drinking very nicely now and will be good in the next few years. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Needed an hour to open up properly, and we enjoyed it for the next 5 hours.

Very tasty and enjoyable by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Very deep ruby in color with a reddish rim. Not showing much age.

Fruity nose with blueberries, black plums, black cherries, raspberries, earth, light oak, licorice, spices, light herbs, black pepper and pencil lead.

Full bodied and elegant, with medium-plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, plums, red currants, oak, tobacco, earth, cherries, spices, peppercorn and coffee.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendocino County in California. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

This 9 year old is drinking very nicely now, and will continue to drink nicely in the next 3 to 5 years.

Good right out of the bottle, and better with airtime. I gave it a couple of hours in the decanter to open up properly.

Very enjoyable by itself, as a sipping wine by the porch.

Feels like a fruit forward right bank Bordeaux. Tangy and spicy. Rich and elegant.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
