Snuggle by the fire and breathe deep to sip this mysterious blend with a smooth velvet underbelly just for you. A Rhone-style blend of Syrah, Grenache and just a little bit of Zinfandel to round it out.
"Pat Paulsen Winery “Odyssey” is a blend that takes cherry and violets and creates a new species: unforgettable." - Meridith May
"Odyssey is an ancient story of modern California winemaking at it's best. The historical quest for grape varietals that match the location, growing techniques that fit the climate, and blending methods that bring out the best, has given wonderful and unique variations from region to region around the world. From the bold dark wines of Bordeaux to the soft supple elegant wines of Chianti, we appreciate the differences and the styles. In this case, we start our journey in the Bordeaux area of France, where Cabernet Sauvignon has become King. Then we travel to the Rhone Valley of France, where Syrah forms the base of a classic style. And as if by magic, we transport these grapes to Napa Valley and Sonoma County, and the majestic highlands of Mendocino, where they thrive and produce deep and velvety components. Let's continue our journey to discover an older Petite Sirah vineyard that thrives in warmer inland valleys. Then touch this off with barrel aging in a mix of newer and older barrels that add complexity and soften the edges. The result is a Velvet Goldmine of flavor and fun. The riper base makes this wine soft on the finish, and the medium body gives it enough weight to stand up to heavier foods, but it won't overwhelm, and it even does well as a sipping wine, for those who like to sip something with a little more gusto and power." - Monty Paulsen
