The 2003 Odyssey is comprised of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot. It is blended to express the essence of our vineyards on Atlas Peak. The texture is rich, giving a wonderful “mouth feel.” While not one of the varietals dominates the flavor, one still has the impression of Napa Valley Cabernet. There are layers of flavors, with black cherry predominating; yet nuances of white pepper, chocolate and cinnamon are present. This is a great example of the winemaker’s art of blending varietals to make the sum add up to more than the parts. While very approachable now, we believe this wine will easily age for 8 to 10 years with its tannin structure. 325 cases produced.
