Last night, we opened a 2002 Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon that rocked! It is one of Dean’s earlier hobby wines that was foot-stomped and made in an old world style. The medium-full bodied wine has soft tannins, ripe fruit and balanced herbal notes.
For sake of comparison, we also opened a 2012 King Crimson Cabernet. It has vanilla aromas, bright fruit and medium tannins.
Both wines paired perfectly with grilled rib-eye steaks topped with blue cheese.
Dean makes wines with definite aging potential, yet drink nicely upon release.
R-wine maker clearly knew what he was doing before launching the Rockin’ R brand.
