Description

Historical figures of significance and stature have sometimes had their names appended with the phrase “the Great’. Examples include Peter the Great, Frederick the Great, Catherine the Great. It was this inspiration that caused us to call the very best barrels of our Oddball Saperavi, a grape variety and wine of significance and stature, “Oddball the Great”. This is a commanding wine of depth and power that is available only in miniscule quantities in great years. Oddball the Great will be great drinking well into the future.

Tasting Notes

So plush it smells like velvet looks. Dense plumes of dark fruit engulf as they unfold. Leather, pennies, blood and tar. Pomegranate molasses, earthy beets, split timber, piecrust, char, and burnt sugar. There’s a savoury finish to the sweet fruit palate– the texture salivating. Coffee grounds, black olives, and wet earth.
