Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose plums, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, coffee, chocolates, peppercorn, spices, earth, light vegetables and pencil lead.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, vanilla, vegetables ,earth, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, coffee, pencil lead and peppercorn.


Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice Cabernet from Paso Robles, California. Not fully balanced yet, with mild complexity. Needs a couple of years in the bottle to mature properly.

Very consistent over the years and a little overpriced in my opinion.

Good right out of the bottle, but better after an hour of airtime.
Good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.


14% alcohol by volume. (a little lower than previous vintages).

87 Points.

$25.

First tasting of the ‘16 vintage. Still young but doesn’t disappoint. Fruit forward and smooth, but perhaps lacking some structure and firmness. To be revisited as it is so early.

Consistent vintage to vintage. A bit jammy in the finish for my taste, but still layered and restrained for Cali Cab.

If you are holding this 2006 Justin, now is the time. This wine is in its prime right now. Fabulous. Rich with fruit, bursting with flavor.

Gets even better as it opens up. Very nice on this mild DC summer evening.

Not sure what happened but this wine got deleted from my profile. Quite nice, popped and poured. Had a nice herbal not a little grassy, with nice pretty rounded tannins. Great wine for the price.
