"Odedi"

Deep purple in color with a short purplish rim.

Sweet nose of cherry pie, sweet plums, black currants, dried figs, blackberries, raisins, earth, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, medicine, coffee, chocolates and peppercorn.

Full-bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate, and extremely fruity, with blackberries, black plums, raisins, sweet cherries, dried figs, cooked strawberries, vanilla, cloves, cedar, spices, earth, light vegetables, herbs, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins, tangy cranberries and bitter vegetables.

This California Zinfandel, from the house of Michael David, is always enjoyable. Well-balanced with mild complexity.

Good as a sipping wine and for parties. Good right out of the bottle, and better as it opens up.

I enjoyed sipping on it, all by itself, by the pool. Would also pair nicely with BBQ lamb or a burger. Might be too fruity for some...

15% alcohol by volume.

香りがふくよか。直球ではなくふわっと果実味が味わえる

...I read a review of their Zin and the writer writes that it's like a "Big Cab." I drink their Cab and I swear I'm drinking a Zin... Never disappointed by these guys, but this left me under-whelmed...

This is big one! Big nose, as someone said it's a lot like a Cab. Good body, fruit and that California Zin taste!

So smooth. Light pepper, dark berry and a bit jammy. Very nice.
