Top Notes For
"Odedi"

A beautiful color of ruby with a wide reddish rim.

Pretty nose of blueberries, currants, oak, light vanilla, wood, black licorice, light vegetables, pencil lead, dust, alcohol, black pepper, leather, earth and spices.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity. Elegant with long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, blueberries, currants, vanilla, wood, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, light vegetables and red candy.

Long finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Zinfandel from Sonoma County, is drinking very nicely now, as a 4 year old. Showing great elegance with nice complexity and a beautiful nose. Great complexity on the nose.

Not a typical California Zinfandel at all. Much lighter than I expected from one.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly, and I would really recommend doing that, as it is a completely different wine, once open. I had this vintage a year ago and it was not there at all. So nice to see that it came back so nicely.

Will be better with age, and would be nice to revisit it in the next 3 to 5 years.

Aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels. Only 55 cases produced. (this is bottle number 600).

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with meats, cheeses, nuts and olives.

14.1% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Light ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.

On the nose, sour cherries, red currants, strawberries, plums, light wood, spices, licorice, red candy, herbs, earth, dust, leather and light black pepper.

Medium plus in body with high acidity.

Dry and tart on the palate with strawberries, cranberries, raspberries, oak, light vanilla, vegetables, celery, wet leaves, bitter herbs, pencil lead, spices, peppercorn and leather.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tart pomegranate.

This California Zinfandel is still young and austere. Unbalanced with nice complexity.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and show some tannins.

I had the 2014 vintage last year and loved it. I hope time will balance it out.

Dark inky in color with a short purple rim.

Very pronounced and fruity nose of blackberries, blackcurrants, sweet cherries, alcohol, wood, licorice, tobacco leaf, cloves, vanilla, cola, light green vegetables, earth, eucalyptus, smoke, spices and black pepper.

Full-bodied, bold, rich and jammy, with medium plus acidity and long long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, raspberry jam, raisins, dried figs, smoke, spices, bitter herbs, licorice, chocolates, mocha, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Long finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a wonderful Zinfandel from Russian River Valley in California. Balanced and enjoyable by itself, with a great mouthfeel. Spicy with nice complexity. The tangy ending makes it interesting. Showing a very generous nose, that is very enjoyable just to sniff on.

Drinking very nicely now, similar to the Caymus style of wine.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (60 minutes.)

A good food wine too, that would pair nicely with burgers. I paired it with good music all by itself.

Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. A very small production of only 55 cases.

This Single Vineyard Zinfandel is delicious

Really nice nose, cherry and strawberry on the palate, good acidity and light on tannin. Finish is pleasant.
