Expert Reviews

In absolutely classic Odyssey style; three years in new and one-year-old French and American barriques; silky smooth black fruits, cedary oak and tannins all coalesce; the screwcap will underwrite its long future.

Dark plum reds with purple red tinges.

Aroma

A rich & complex expression of ripe fruit & oak matured tones. Dusty mulberry & ripe plum with subtle black olive fruits are enticingly infused with sweet vanilla bean, smoky & roasted mocha oak matured aromas.

Palate

Seams of complexity are a feature of the palate.Rich fruit and cedar oak tones are smoothly combined in this generous & appealing palate structure. Ripe dark berries, hints of dusty mulberry and spicy plums with subtle vanilla, mocha and chocolate from the long oak maturation period. Fine dusty, softly assertive lingering tannins complete the long flavours.
