Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium intensity.

Nose of cherries, black currants, oak, licorice, spices, wet leaves, earth, herbs, green vegetables, graphite and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, black currants, plums, vanilla, licorice, oak, earth, light vegetables, tobacco, dark chocolates, herbs and peppercorn.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice surprise. A nice red blend from Lebanon. Fruit forward right out of the bottle, and gets earthier as it opens up.

Good by itself or with food. A good everyday wine to sip on. I paired it with a vegetarian burger and fries.

A blend of 35% Grenache, 35% Cinsault and 30% Tempranillo. Grapes are grown at around 3,000 feet elevation.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$18.

Spices and quite tannic at first, but drops off in a short space of time, underlying black fruits and dried raspberries.
