Top Notes For
"Odedi"

A fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel.

Showing black fruits with earth, wood, spices, vegetables, light vanilla, tobacco, peppercorn, espresso, chocolates and bell pepper.

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

Nice length on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

Very enjoyable by itself or with food. Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and show some tannins.

Could use a few more years in the bottle to mature and remove some of the vegetable notes.

I had it a couple of years ago and it was very austere, now it is very drinkable although still young.

Aged for 24 months in New French oak barrels.

14% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$45.

Sept 30, 2014. Actually, we had the 100% Petite Verdot, imported from Israel by Caitlin, who was at the winery. Sour cherry, plum, earthy. Rich and yammy. Beautiful purple color.

Deep ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, spices, smoke, chocolates, mocha, earth, peppercorn, leather and tobacco leaf.

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

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, blueberry pie, sweet strawberries, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, tobacco, peppercorn, earth and black tea.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great Single Vineyard Cabernet from Israel. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food.

The tangy long finish is a character of many of the wines from this winery, and it shows in this Cabernet too.

Still young and needs another few years in the bottle to mature. Needs 60 minutes of airtime to open up properly.

This special edition 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Judean Hills was aged for 24 months in new French oak barrels. Only 700 bottles were produced.
