"Odedi"

A young Cabernet based Bordeaux from Paulliac. Showing black fruits with earth, oak, licorice, vegetables, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Dry and fruit forward and very drinkable now, but needs 10 years to mature properly.

Medium finish with grippy tannins and tangy cranberries

Needs 3 hours to open up.

Wine Spectator 90 points.

A blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon and 29% Merlot.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$60.

Dark cassis, strawberries, dry earth, red florals are bright. Lean body and finish with good acidity.

Expected a lot from this Bordeaux...undistinguished, but nice, first day but completely lost its Mojo overnight.
