Top Notes For
"Odedi"

To continue my Grenache phase, here is one from France.

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose blueberries, red currants, cherries, oak, cloves, raspberries, spices, light wood, earth, light barnyard, wet leaves, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, raspberries, currants, oak, licorice, peppercorn, spices, green vegetables, dark coffee, herbs, tobacco leaf, graphites, bitter herbs, black tea and earth.

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

This is a nice and earthy Grenache/Syrah blend. Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

A good food wine that will pair nicely with game meats.

Needs an hour to open up properly and show some tannins. Spicy and engaging.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

14% alcohol by volume.

86 points.

$17.

Blood red color of a plum skin. Aroma is opulent in red/black fruits and creosote. Also has some vapor of alcohol going on. Bit of herbal tincture there too. Flavor is fairly simple with berries (black and blue) well represented. Slightly meaty and full bodied. Those classic French tannins dry your tongue and gums too. It’s nice red. Rhône-ish and very drinkable.

An approachable rounded and generous Southern Rhône wine presenting intense red fruit and a delightful hint of spices, this wine was a pleasant Costco Calgary find @ ~$19.50 CAD. Not a Grand Cru but at this price point well worth stocking in your wine selection. Cheers 🍷
