Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Light golden in color.

Strong nose of lemons, citrus, yellow apples, light oak, spices, black pepper and light vanilla.

Full bodied and buttery with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, citrus, red apples, melons, pears, herbs, vegetables, earth, wood, spices, vanilla and white pepper.

Nice finish with spices and almonds.

This is a very nice, slightly aged, Oaky Chardonnay from Washington State. Showing a nice mouthfeel with mild complexity. Rich, yet refreshing. Feels like a Napa Chardonnay.

Wine Enthusiasts 88 points. Wine Advocate 90 points.

This 5 year old is good by itself or with food, and better nicely chilled. Would be interesting to see how it evolves in the next 3 years.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

100% Chardonnay grapes were aged in French oak barrels (34% new) for 10 months.

14.5 % alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$40.

Great balanced flavor after three years. Fruity and clean with mineral notes and mellow buttery finish.
