Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark purple in color with a wide purplish rim.

Fruity on nose with blackberries, oak, black currants, plums, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, peppercorn, purple(?), tobacco, chocolates and graphite.


Medium Plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.


Fruity on the palate with blackberry jam, black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, vanilla, cloves, oak, tobacco, coffee, chocolates, smoke, licorice, pencil lead and peppercorn.


Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice Australian Shiraz blend. Well balanced, jammy and simple, but has a weird "fake" nose. Might be a little sweet for some, as it has some Residual sugar. Drink while fresh.

Reminds me of the Australian 19 Crimes blend. Enjoyable by itself or with food.

A blend of 42% Shiraz, 38% Grenache, 13% Malbec and 7% Petit Verdot.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

87 Points.

$11.

Soft lush boysenberry marmalade and cherry jam laced with subtle new oak. Silky velvet smooth on the pallet, showing hints of vanilla and chocolate.

This is the ultimate red wine!! šŸ˜ You taste the fruit as soon as it hits your tongue. Has a smooth finish. This definitely is a mislabel because their is no end to the hope in this bottle. #Perfect10

Pretty solid red blend for $9.99 at Martins. For the price, it's one of the better wines.

Even though Iā€™m getting over a cold, I can still taste the fruit, oak and smoothness of this wine. Has a good story of hope on the back of the bottle too.

Nose of vanilla, eucalyptus, and cherry. Not as deep or bold as I would have liked. Decent mouth feel, but meh is the best way to describe how it sits on the tongue. Tasting notes of old leather, cherry, and herbs.
