The Odyssey is Katnook’s flagship cabernet sauvignon, and the 2004 reviewed below is a very good wine. Katnook is one of my favourite producers from Coonawarra at this level. On opening, the wine initially was a little off-putting, with a slightly unusual aroma of coconuts, butter and a cola like note. The wine quickly settled down however to reveal a more classic aroma of light herbs, chocolate and oak. The palate had nice length and black fruits were evident. An interesting and serious wine. Drink or keep. 90 points.
