"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with medium and a purplish rim.

Wonderful nose with violets, blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, licorice, chocolate, oak, sweet candy and light bell pepper.
Full bodied with medium acidity and great legs.

Fruity on the palate with blackberries, sweet cherries, ripe blueberries, cloves, wood, pencil lead, licorice, dark chocolate and peppercorn.

Nice finish with soft, sweet tannins and black pepper.

This is a nice blend of 60% Zinfandel, 23% Petit Verdot and 17% Petite Sirah from California (The winery is out of Washington State).Very much like the Washington blends like 14 hands and menage a trois.

Enjoyable by itself or with food. I paired it with small appetizers and a cheese plate. Good right out of the bottle and a Great party wine.
Not too complex , yet, Entertaining with a great mouth feel, nice and balanced. This is America in a bottle, Open and drink, No waiting necessary. Not bad for $14.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Dark, extracted. Flabby and shows huge zin character. Not bad for its category.

Liked the 2015 vintage better than 2014 - but loved that its only $3 at TJs. Probably won’t be there much longer. Definitely Zin in the blend but not overpowering. Give it some air and improves further.

Dark Ruby in color with a wide reddish / brick rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, blueberries, wood, light vanilla, licorice, earth, cloves, light vegetables, peppercorn and spices.

Full bodied and spicy, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black plums, cherries, spices, peppercorn, earth and graphite.

Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.

This 4 year old, California red blend is still drinking nicely. Well balanced with mild complexity. Spicy mouthfeel and soft.

A good everyday wine at a good value. This will not last for very long so drink up if you have one.

Ruby in color with a brick rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, bell pepper, peppercorn, vegetables and smoke.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, tar, pencil lead, peppercorn, smoke and bitter vegetables.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.

This California Red Blend is on the way out by now. Soft and smooth with nice complexity and balance.
A bit heavy on the vegetables and herbs, though, and a little bitter on the ending.
