Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black plums, oak, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, vegetables, peppercorn, tobacco, herbs, bell pepper and wet leaves.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, wood, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, vanilla, coffee, vegetable, earth, leather, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great surprise. This 8 year old Malbec is drinking very nicely now. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food.

This Single Vineyard is showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Needs 4 hours in a decanter to open up properly and show tannins and all of the complexity.

This was a good vintage in Mendoza and it is showing. Very easy to drink so watch out 😁

Grapes are grown at 3,500 feet elevation, and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

15% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$50.

This is a special single vineyard Malbec they had open. Since the bottle wasn’t labeled better, our host couldn’t be more specific on the vineyard designation from the Estate.

On the nose, beautiful ruby fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, deep blue fruit hues. Used expresso grounds, dark, rich, semi-sweet soil, light loamy soil, beautiful dark lavender and violets.

On the palate, the body is full and lush. The tannins big, meaty, tarry and sticky. Ruby fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries & deep blue fruit hues. Used expresso grounds, dark, rich, semi-sweet soil, leather, graphite, light loamy soil, beautiful dark lavender and violets. Beautiful round acidity and a thick, well balanced, rich finish.

Photos of, the entrance to Bodega Terrazas los de Andes. Area they receive grapes to conveyer to the de-stemer. Their wine shop. Another outside shot of the Bodega.

Bold tannins that yield to a little time in the glass & superb finish paired with a beef & barley soup.

Dark purple. Tobacco, oak, vanilla and hints of apple, peach. Full bodied, medium acidity. Seems very filtered. High alcohol.

Fantastic wine. Deep layers of dark berry, currant flavors with spicy finish that holds a lingering grip on your throat for a full minute.

16.5/20 (90/100) Насыщенный аромат черничного варенья, сливового джема, шоколада, ванили и гвоздики. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью и густыми, мягкими танинами. Мощно!
