Apothic Red – Great Full-Bodied Blend

By: Cresta

I normally don’t drink red blends, but I happened upon a bottle of Apothic Red a couple weeks ago and I will definitely be making this purchase again.

Apothic Red is a delicious blend of spicy Zinfandel, fruity Syrah, bold Cabernet Sauvignon and smooth Merlot. The winemaker’s blend includes grapes from a variety of California vineyards. It is fruity on the nose with flavors of cherry, chocolate, vanilla and a little bit of spice. Sounds like a dessert to me!

I think this is a very versatile wine as well. A nice everyday selection and a great value at around $10. It also would make a good hostess gift to take to holiday parties you may be attending over the next couple weeks.  And although a somewhat bold full-bodied wine, I believe it’s a good choice for white wine drinkers who might be hesitant to try a red.

Now I must try its companion, Apothic White – a blend of Chardonnay, Riesling and Moscato.
