While this is not the best wine so far, I really love this producer. Very ripe and round-soft. It juicy on the palate. Blackberries, black raspberries, purple fruits, poached strawberries, dry soils, black licorice to anise, used leather, dark fruit cola, beautiful dark spice, coffee grounds, dry stems, violet, dark flowers and lavender.

Finally getting around to posting Day 5 in Napa, our final day. 5 years in a row visiting...hope to make it 6 next year!

A wonderful wine, with room for score improvement over the next few years. Signature SLD to me. Mocha, dark cocoa, blackberry pie and a streak of ripe/rich red fruit down the middle. Dusty. Cinnamon and baking spice finish. Very good.

We had the 2016 Vintage on 2/20-21/22. Tastes and scents of blackberry, cassis and eucalyptus. Full bodied and fruit forward. The tannins were all smoothed out.

Magnificent, striking currant flavors in the nose and the mouth. This is a JUICE. BOMB. So much body, it extends into an interminable (mesmorizing!) finish. I love the expressively balanced tannins - so much nuanced structure! Also in play is violet, leather, and a hint of spice box. It all plays so well together though, Odette presents an exquisite symphony of refinement.

This was a pleasant surprise. I thought there were notes of tea, leather and cherries. This drinks so nicely, various dark fruits meld together making a luscious glass of wine. Blueberry, dark cherry, currants, touch of earth and dark chocolate were some highlights. The finish is elegant. This was a very enjoyable bottle of wine. Well worth a visit if you want to splurge on something nice.
