Top Notes For
"Odedi"

This is a very tasty Grenache from California. Showing raspberries, cherries, red currants, earth, vanilla, vegetables, wood, spices, tobacco and chocolates.

Nicely balanced with mild complexity.

Medium bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate and easy drinking.

Nice length on the finish with fine grained tannins.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Spicy and entertaining.

I had it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses by the lake.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$34.

"Odedi"

Light purple in color with a wide pinkish rim.

Strong fruity nose of strawberries, raspberries, cherries, light earth, wild flowers, light vegetables, spices, rose water, dark coffee and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with raspberries, strawberries, tangy cherries, spices, peppercorn and earth.

Long tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very tasty Grenache from California. Easy drinking and spicy with a nice mouthfeel. Well structured, with a tangy and spicy backbone.

Good right out of the bottle and better after an hour of airtime, when the tannins show up.

The nose smells "clean", which was very interesting, and the alcohol is very unnoticeable, so watch out 😉

100% Grenache grapes.

I paired it with cheeses and heavy appetizers.
