Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose with blueberries, blackberries, black currants, light oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, graphite, coffee and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, graphite and dark coffee.

Medium plus on the finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.

This red blend from Washington is drinking nicely now. Nicely balanced with mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel. Soft and engaging.

The high alcohol is not noticeable any longer.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (30 minutes). Good by itself or with food.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

L’ho trovato al supermercato in Sedona. L’ho aspetto piu perche e’ da Washington. Ma e’ troppo dolce, e manca iquibilibrato. Sarebbe buono piu di Charles Smith.

Drinkable Red wine blend of Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Malbec. Blackberry, cherry, plums and oak with a lingering finish.

Very palatable. Certainly will buy again. Not too dry which is good.

After a beautiful day at the beach it’s nice to have a really good wine to finish off the day. Dark purple in color with tastes of blackberry and smoke. A little bit acidic but goes down very nice.

Medium bodied blend of Merlot and Syrah. Very tannic with tastes of dark fruit.
