Odette’s 2015 is absolutely stunning. The Wine Advocate loved its “opulent crème de cassis, baked cherries and mocha notes with touches of charcuterie, licorice, sandalwood and forest floor. Big, rich and full-on sexy in the mouth, it delivers loads of black fruit preserves, exotic spice and savory layers.” Oh mercy.

Wine Advocate

Very deep purple-black colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate bursts forth from the glass with opulent crème de cassis, baked cherries and mocha notes with touches of charcuterie, licorice, sandalwood and forest floor. Big, rich and full-on sexy in the mouth, it delivers loads of black fruit preserves, exotic spice and savory layers. Framed by soft, very fine-grained tannins, it finishes with lingering anise and chocolate-covered cherries notions. Yum!

A blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, and the rest 3% Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is similar to the reserve release, just slightly more classic in style and less exuberant. There’s also 4,000 cases of this beauty available and as Napa Valley Cabernet goes, it’s a smoking value. Offering the classic, concentrated, rich 2015 profile as well as loads of plum, currants, spice-box, chocolate, and hints of cedar pencil, this full-bodied beauty has sweet tannin, great intensity, a multi-dimensional texture, and a terrific finish. Drink it anytime over the coming 15-20 years.
