Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, black currants, sweet cherries, spices, oak, vanilla, earth, cinnamon, cloves, tobacco leaf, dark coffee, black tea, chocolates and peppercorn.

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

Dry on the palate with blueberries, plums, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, earth and pencil lead.

Long finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.


This is a very enjoyable Cabernet based Bordeaux blend from California. Showing nice complexity and a great tangy finish.

Needs an hour to open up, but was even better after 2 hours, when much of the complexity came in.


I liked the fact that it's not high in alcohol, so you can drink more of it 😃.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with brie cheese which was great together. Interesting, engaging and very tasty.


A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. Aged for 29 months in French Oak barrels.

89 points.

13.8% alcohol by volume.

Needs an hour to open up properly and remove some of the acidity.

Showing a beautiful nose. I loved to smell on it for a long time. Still young and needs another few years in the bottle to mature properly.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.
