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.
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
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.
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
