"Odedi"

This is a simple Rioja red. Showing red and black fruits with earth, wet leaves, herbs, peppercorn, pencil lead, dark coffee and spices.

Full bodied and spicy with medium finish.

Earthy on the palate and dry.

Good right out of the bottle and gets earthier as it opens up. Tannins show up after an hour of airtime.

A good food wine for the weekday. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.


Aged for 36 months in oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

85 points.

A simple 5 year old Rioja from Spain. Showing red and black fruits with vegetables and chocolate notes.

Medium finish with bitter herbs and fine tannins.

Not fully balanced, but good with food. Better the next day.

Some Spanish funk mixed in with nice tannins. In great shape for being 5 years old.

Drank 7/16/18.

Another Costco Value wine at $7 or $8.

Medium nose of red cherry and some soggy earth scents Dark flavors of black cherry, tar, coffee, and some light wood flavors are backed by medium + tannins. Medium finish. Gets a just little muddy on the flavor profile, but does open up with some time. Overall not a bad wine, and a great value.

3/21/7/3/3 + 50 = 87 pts.

A very strong, bold Tempranillo that captures the region's essence. However, the bitter undertones dominate, taking away from the peppery balance I was hoping for. The sour bitterness did not improve after the wine breathed. UPDATE: This wine tasted much better the next day, after having more time to breathe.

Aromas of rich earthy cherries, and cedar. Tastes of dried black fruits with a hint of spice. A bit thin on body but has good balance and a long dry earthy & tannic finish. Paired with popcorn and House of Cards! Great value as well. ($7) 😊

Drank 10/15/18.

Nice paring with a pancetta spiced pork chop. See my earlier rating for tasting notes very nice for the price.

Pairing this along side home-made pizza tonight, yum. Tannic cherry notes going into the decanter, notes forthcoming... $6.90 at my Costco.

Color is black cherry, only translucent at the edges.

Nose has earthy cherry, trending a little towards cherry syrup, interesting.

Palate has fresh cherry, light toasty wood, simple yet vivid but the finish is heady, maybe more air time is needed... Faint mocha notes make an appearance.

Definitely a solid value for the price.

Really is a good wine for a much better price. Toast same as one I've been buying for over twice the price.
