Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Light golden in color and very pretty.

Strong nose of citrus, lemons, yellow apples, diesel, spices, minerals, light tropical fruits, sea salt and pineapples.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity, crisp and creamy.

Dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, apples, pears, light diesel, pineapples, white pepper, light earth, herbs and spices.

Long tangy finish with limes and black pepper.

This is a very tasty Riesling from Napa Valley. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Nicely balanced and rich.

Although easy to drink, it is more of thinking wine. A good quality wine with lots to offer. The spicy finish makes it interesting.

Very expressive right out of the bottle, and calmed down after 30 minutes of airtime. Better when not too cold.

This 4 year old is drinking so fresh, and I love that. Would age nicely in the next 10 years. One of the better dry Rieslings that I had from California. Has the potential to be a 94+ point wine.

Good by itself or with food. I had it all by itself by the pool.

12.8% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$34.

Nose of rubber pool toys and lemon zest made me smile. Racing acidity and high toned citrus fruit. Teensy bit of sweetness in a long clementine-y finish. I’d be shocked to find a better Riesling made in Napa.
