Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Pale ruby in color.

On the nose, oak, blackberries, blueberries, figs and peppercorn.

Medium-bodied and somewhat watery mouthfeel.

Smooth on the palate with blackberries, plums, blueberries, strawberries and black pepper.

Very fruity on the finish with light tannins and bitter almonds.
It has some bad aftertaste at the end, which I didn't like. I will not buy again.

Very jammy. Drink slowly to absorb the rich flavor. Kyle Gregory farewell party.

Super nice Merlot, big nose, nice balance and body followers by a wonderful finish. Tasted against the Manage a Trois and Mutt Lynch Merlots (all of which showed well). This was Lori's top pick and a close second for me. We got it at $10 a bottle and it is bargain at this price.

Not enough bite for my taste. More of a smooth berry flavor.
