"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a brick rim.

Showing a beautiful nose of black fruits, cedar, vanilla and chocolates.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Fruit forward on the palate with nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel.

Showing black currant, blackberries, cooked plums, cedar, licorice, vanilla, cola, spices, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, caramel, light earth, eacaliptus and black pepper.

Spicy on the long finish with spices, cherries and fine grained tannins.

This beautiful 15-year-old is drinking very nicely now. smooth and elegant, rich and extracted

Peaking now and will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 to 15 years.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime.

Soft and enjoyable by itself. A great sipping wine. Just gorgeous.

15.5% alcohol by volume.

95 points.

$500.

Killer nose of pure blackberry led a potent, broad panoply of dark velvety fruit and vanilla oak, giving a sense of just having been bottled in spite of its age. This is a keeper, insanely good and likely getting better.

The Dark Ark doesn’t appear in the Delectable system, but wow this is intense.

What was your last critic rated “100pt” wine? This one, a huge Napa Cab, an atypical wine for me, but it was beautiful after a 4 hour decant. 15.5% alcohol, but you would never know it. Incredibly deep, layered and intensely flavored with marvelous texture and mouthfeel. Rich black and blue fruits, mocha, subtle hints of charcuterie and seamless oak integration with a 30 second finish. 💥

Part 1 of the final and main event for the Fall WNH. The most spectacular lineup of wines I’ve ever seen, and an overall wonderful ending to an amazing trip with fantastic people.

To me, these wines epitomize hedonistic, plush and silky Napa Cabernet. Milk chocolate dipped black cherries, blueberry pie and nutmeg topped mocha on the nose. Rich and exuberant on the palate with a finish wrapped in bacon fat and cherries jubilee. Wonderful wine,
@Mike R !
