Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark inky in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cloves, cola, light vegetables, leather, coffee, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied, smooth and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, figs, raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cola, chocolates, mocha, coffee, tobacco, leather, graphite, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 4 year old Bordeaux Blend from Napa is very fruity with great complexity and a great mouthfeel. Well balanced and spicy. Rich, extracted and delicious.

Peaking now and will be good in the next few years.

Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime, when tannins come in.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers, but it is so yummy all by itself. Thank you Alex for sharing this with me.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Great fruity nose with black currants, blackberries, figs, cooked cherries, smoke, licorice, cedar, vanilla, alcohol, spices, cinnamon, chocolates, coffee, peppercorn and licorice.

Full bodied and big, yet smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, sweet plums, cherry pie, dried figs, tobacco, spices, wood, herbs, earth, leather and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great Napa Bordeaux blend. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing good complexity with a great mouthfeel.

The tangy finish makes it interesting, with a teeth staining color.

This 3 year old is drinking very nicely now. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (one hour).

Rich and extracted. Delightful and delicious.

I paired it with a big piece of steak and grilled asparagus.

Price $30.

Beautiful color of dark ruby with a burgundy rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, wood, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, black pepper, graphite, earth, caramel and cloves.

Full bodied, bold and smooth, with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked strawberries, spices, pencil lead, black pepper, leather, earth, wood, vanilla and light green vegetables.

Long finish with round tannins and bitter herbs.

This is a nice surprise. This Napa Valley Bordeaux blend is complex and well balanced. A good sipping wine with a great mouthfeel, that is not too heavy on the oak and vanilla.

This teeth staining color red is drinking nicely now, and would be good in the next 5 years.

Good right out of the bottle, and after an hour in a decanter, the tannins show up.
Just Delicious.
