Top Notes For
"Odedi"

It's Friday, and it is time for my Friday's Cabernet fix. This time it's a Napa Valley Cab.

Beautiful color of dark ruby with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, cherries, sweet raspberries, wood, vanilla, smoke, coke, chocolates, coffee, earth, mint, spices, metals and black pepper.

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

Dry on the palate with plums, strawberries, cherries, raspberries, wood, earth, vanilla, licorice, vegetables, vinaigrette, acetone, alcohol, peppercorn, leather, tobacco, coffee and dark chocolates.

Nice length on the finish with medium tannins and tart cherries.

This is a nice Napa Cabernet. Fruity with mild complexity, but not fully balanced yet. A little tart on the ending for my taste. Needs a couple of years in the bottle to mature.

This Californian Bordeaux blend needs a couple of hours to open up properly and show some tannins.

Enjoyable by itself or with food like BBQ steak. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

James Suckling 92 points.

A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

House warming gift for my sister. Nicely balanced fine tannins and fruit. I get blackberry, leather and barnyard.
