Apothic Red reveals intense fruit aromas and flavors of rhubarb and black cherry, complemented by hints of mocha, chocolate, brown spice and vanilla. The plush, velvety mouthfeel and the smooth finish round out this intriguing, full-bodied red blend.
"This well-crafted wine was inspired by the “Apotheca,” a mysterious place where wine was blended and stored in 13th century Europe. While that has absolutely nothing to do with where this wine comes from, it still sounds pretty cool. In any case, one must exercise caution when coming upon such great looking bottles, because they tend to be all packaging and nothing behind the label. This highly recommended Apothic wine, however, really delivers on many levels and can be said to be a highly successful blending experiment. It should drink well through 2013, and can be enjoyed with a nicely grilled medium-rare sirloin steak and some roasted potatoes."
