Top Notes For
"Odedi"

My Rating 83 Points.
Price $22.

Ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of strawberries, raspberries, light oak, spices, dark coffee, pencil lead, earth, vegetables and black pepper.

Medium bodied with high acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with pomegranates, cranberries, raspberries, wood, licorice, spices, cloves, earth, leather, smoke, chocolates, coffee, light vegetables, cinnamon and peppercorn.

Short finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a drinkable red blend from Israel. Not fully balanced, but showing nice complexity. A good food wine. Light and refreshing and better chilled.

Should be better in a year or two.

A blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Syrah and 20% Alicante.

Fermented in clay Amphora containers for 4 months, and then spent 10 months in French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Ruby in color with it red rim.
On the nose, Mediterranean spices, blackberries, cherries, oak, forest floor and black pepper.

Light to medium bodied with medium acidity.

Dry and tart on the palate with cherries, blueberries, strawberries, red currants and spices.

Medium finish with soft tannins.

This is a nice wine with a Tuscon feel, from Israel. A blend of 50% Sangiovese and 50% Merlot. Nice everyday wine, but it is a little bit more complex and more intriguing than average.
Went through two fermentations in clay barrels and then aged for eight months in French oak barrels.

13.7% alcohol by volume.
