The Cochon line from Odisea focuses on Rhone varietals in the heart of California wine country. The Whole Hog blend is a classic southern Rhone blend. Ripe black cherry, black raspberry and plums combined with white pepper, cocoa and savory spices with a hint of smoke. Have some with bbq this weekend!

The most hyper-masculine wine I’ve had in a while, this is deep, dark, roasted fruit, strong coffee, cigar, roasted meat, and smoke on the nose and it doubles down in the mouth with structure you don’t expect for under $30. Not an everyday style, but interesting tonight.

Really pleasant with a slightly fruity smell. Balanced and good for a variety of foods. Will get again.

Plum, cherry, some spice. Medium mouthfeel. It has a little bite, and acid. Needed extra Prilosec. But good with chicken, black olive, and quinoa slow cooker meal. 45% Syrah, 25% Grenache, 15% carignane, 10% cinsault, 5% Mourvèdre.

Good structure with rich plum flavours and peppery chocolate spice. Smooth and easy.
