Top Notes For
"Odedi"

inky / purple in color with a purple rim.

On the nose, blackberries, figs, oak, vanilla and plums.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, blueberries, figs, spices, sweet cherries, cooked plums and peppercorn.

Full-bodied and fruit forward.

Nice finish with full round tannins and dark chocolates.

This limited release , Authentic black , was a good surprise for me. I did not expect that today. Very enjoyable by itself.

My favorite 2 grape blend. Petite sirah and Zinfandel. A good drink for my palette. Full berries and jammy spice on nose. Heavy bodied with red fruits forward and a splash of tartness. Tannins are surprisingly medium for a heavy dry blend. Finished and lingered with a toasty cocoa profile. Good buy for less than $15.

One of the best 12.99 wines (and at that price in Sausalito, CA, it's an amazing value!!) A big blackberry taste for a Petite Shiraz!!

Petit Sirah and Zinfandel combine in a delicious dark Black Wine, full bodied with blackberry and blueberry flavors.

Very fruity, strong blackcurrant flavor, probably a bit overpowering for me. Would have liked a stronger tanin finish

Sweet deepness. Nice long last. Not much on the nose. I like it.
