Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, black currants, black plums, black cherries, oak, light vanilla, licorice, earth, tobacco, dark chocolates, spices, light herbs and coffee.

Full-bodied and smooth with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with black cherries, raspberries, currants, licorice, oak, tobacco, spices, peppercorn, light vegetables, alcohol, earth and leather.

Medium plus on the finish with fine-grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

What a great third growth Left Bank Bordeaux. This 5 year old from the great 2015 vintage, is showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Already balanced, yet still very young.

Needs 4 hours to open up, so I recommend taking your time with it. (I tasted it every 30 minutes).

Still needs 10 years in the bottle to mature properly, but so delicious now.

A blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon and 39% Merlot. Aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. Kosher for passover.

14% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$85.

Loved it. When this baby grows up it will be a stunner. At opening the nose filled the room. Then it shut down. At hour 6 it was game on again.

À la fois lisse et savoureux, mais qui ne soulève pas les éloges ou la passion. Du moins pour l’instant
