"Odedi"

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.

Rich, powerful, extracted and fruit forward with black fruits and chocolate notes, vanilla, wood, spices, peppercorn, tobacco, graphite and dark coffee.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Spicy with a long finish and round tannins.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Good for parties.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

This is a tasty Napa Cabernet. Showing black fruits, cedar, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, chocolates, mocha and coffee.

Full-bodied and smooth with soft tannins with nice length on the finish.

Good by itself or with food. Showing a nice mouthfeel with nice complexity. Spicy and tangy.

This will be beautiful in 5 years.

This is Palmaz’s second wine. I’ve been fortunate to have visited Palmaz once...one of the most incredible winery tours with their high tech tools.

This is a nice second wine. Still required a 30min+ decant due to age, but it was easy to drink after. A lot of toasted graham cracker, blackberries and fig on the nose. Palate was similar with little tannic bite. Smooth. There was a unique aspect to the finish of this wine...cinnamon bread wrapped in dark fruit. Very interesting.
