Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a reddish cloudy rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, black currants, black plums, black cherries, licorice, spices, vanilla, wild flowers, oak, tobacco, dark chocolates, light alcohol, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, raspberries, plums, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, tobacco, light herbs, peppercorn, a touch of red candy, espresso, licorice, spices and chocolates.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Franc from Sonoma County. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Easy drinking and fruit forward. Tangy and interesting. Loved the finish.

Needs an hour of airtime to open up properly.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

Made with 100% Cabernet Franc grapes from Vineyards in Chalk Hill and Knights Valley.

13.7% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$45.
