Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Nice ruby in color with medium intensity and a wide purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, plums, cherries, licorice, oak, earth, vanilla, coffee, mocha, smoke, light vegetables, chocolates and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with plums, cherries, sweet raspberries, light wood, vanilla, milk chocolates, coffee, peppercorn and spices.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a nice Zinfandel from California. Drinks very lightly for a Zinfandel, but not in a bad way. Easy drinking with mild complexity and a bit jammy. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. I paired it with a burger.

14.4% alcohol by volume.

87 Points.

$16.

Not the oak nose I remember from earlier vintages. Still an enjoyable glass of Zin

Nice, not overly spicy. Pleasant drinker with meats. Not sure I have it as a daily drinker.
