The 2009 Apothic Red reveals intense fruit aromas and flavors of rhubarb and black cherry that are complemented by hints of mocha and vanilla. The plush, velvety mouthfeel and smooth finish round out this intriguing, full-bodied red blend.
(From «nv» Vintage) Apothic Red is bold and enchanting, as it captures the dark fruit characteristics of Syrah and Zinfandel. These jammy flavors blend well with the elegant blackberry and black cherry characteristics of the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The wine is further enhanced by undertones of mocha and vanilla.
was pleasantly surprised, as it had a mild fruit flavor, with a teasing of sweetness. The vanilla Nd chocolate comes through to give it a nice rounded flavour. it is absent of tannins with a hint at the end which just reminds you that this is a Red....All in all, was pleasantly surprised. drank with a roast beef dinner,but was able to enjoy on its own later. For the price, wa a bargain. Will buy again to have on hand as a stand by, or to enjoy sipping on the deck.
this is the perfect wine for people who love spicy food and red wine. it is more on the sweet side and helps combat with the spice of the food so you can thoroughly enjoy both without sacrificing flavor either way
Goût très prononcé de fruits sucrés la première seconde puis les tanins sortent immédiatement après donnant un goût semi-corsé avec une fin fruitée et consistante. Arrière goût de cerise, framboise et cassis.
smooth and red fruit-forward. vanilla notes. you can taste it has merlot in the blend, cab sauvignon and syrah add structure for a wine meant to be consumed now.
"Layers of dark red fruit complemented by hints of vanilla and mocha." Way too fruity and sweet. Very young and simple. Avoid.
Nice smooth red that goes well with port wine cheese spread and crackers. Or just a nice cool night patio sipper!
always have the 2008 & 2009 on hand. easy to drink alone or with a meal, compliments medditerranean food well
Jammy, full body, big fruit up front, not too dry on the finish. Very nice, especially for the price!
very nice blend overall, good fruit and berry on the palate. nice finish with a bit of tannin.
rhubarb, black cherry, mocha, chocolate, vanilla. Oak. blend of Zinfandel, syrah and merlot.
easy drinking. smooth at start. maybe a little bite at finish. not very well defined.
sweet- added fruit. nice blend with balanced after taste. goes well with Oreo balls
Great all-around red table wine. Certainly the most versatile wine I've tried.
