Top Notes For
"Odedi"

This is a delicious California Red blend. Dark purple in color and very fruity on the nose and palate.

Showing black plums, blueberries, raisins, vanilla, licorice, cloves, chocolates, mocha, oak, coffee and peppercorn.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry to off dry on the palate. Tasty and easy drinking.

Spicy finish with fine grained tannins and chocolates. Extracted and rich.

This might be too much for some 😉 but I'm perfectly fine with it. 😃

Good right out of the bottle and good for parties. A good sipping wine by the porch.

Not too complex, but delicious. Perfect for the American palate.

Will be good in the next 3 years.

Plummy, chocolate and ripe cherry. Very rich but not overdone. From the cauldron of Dave Phinney. Very tasty.

Rich & jammy, yes. Super ripe. Less acidity than my taste (I need acidity). For alcohol 15.5%, it doesn't taste hot. I appreciate the eclectic blend.
