Top Notes For
"Odedi"

A nice spicy Cabernet/ Shiraz blend from Australia. Drinking very nicely now, as a three-year-old. Much better than last year.

Showing black fruits, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, oak and licorice.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up.

Nice length on the finish with soft tannins and raspberries.

15% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

A blend of 75% Shiraz and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Big aromas of red fruits with notes of sweet spice. On the palate blackberry and plum, a little towards the jammy side, with notes of cacao and herb spice. Bold rich tannins, medium length ending with berry and spicy finish. Ok value!

A good table wine to go with a red meat based dish. Cherry, raspberry, blueberry and burnt toast accented with fresh cut grass and leaves on the nose.

Never heard of it before buying it but delectable rating made me try it for 14 bucks. I enjoyed it. Nice balance of fruit and meatiness. Definitely will buy again- must let breath for 30 min at least. Happy to find another go to Shiraz.

Strong tart berries good body. Dry and smooth to finish at 15%. I like this but I'm more impressed by wines with a lower ABV and still this same richness. Should have checked the % before buying
