Top Notes For
"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.

"Odedi"

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.

Check out @Severn Goodwin‘s review of the 2013 as my impressions of the 2014 are the same. Simply an excellent value #rioja.

I am afraid that I do not have a lot of experience with Tempranillo! So for this rating I am looking at my taste buds and QPR! Decant of one hour on this...on the nose rich earth, leather and dark cherries. Tastes of cherry liqueur, tar, leather, and anise. Finish is a bit off..but not enough to discount!! I would get this again!

Used it to dilute too-sweet sangria, have decided it is the new go-to for such.

Love this a lot more than we thought we would! Great body (almost like a Cab Sauv), but also drinks light - almost like a Pinot Noir. From what we’ve tasted, excellent flavor and quality. And literally less than $7 a bottle at Costco!

Color of ruby with brown and purple note on the rim. Nose of dried strawberry, oak, cured salty meat, spice, round and polished. Taste is dominated by spiciness, zest, solid tannins, and some tobacco leaves. Aftertaste of some mineral, acidity, some more zest, and tobacco leaves. Less than $7, she is awesome.

Nice tannins. Amazing for the money.
Accidentally drank a whole bottle by myself
