A limited release, seasonal red blend with bold sweet and savoury notes, making it a good companion with both hearty dishes and rich desserts.
Winery: Apothic Wines are a brand of E & J Gallo, one of the world’s largest wine producers and distributors. Founded in 1933 by brothers Ernest and Julio Gallo, it is the largest family owned winery in the US. The name Apothic stems from the word “Apotheca,” a “place where wine was blended and stored in 13th century Europe”.
Winemaking: Winemaker Debbie Juergenson has a goal of telling “a story with each blend of Apothic”, “whether it’s one of drama, intrigue or romance”.
Tasting Notes: Inky violet in colour with aromas of grape jam, black pepper and allspice. Concentrated black cherry and blueberry flavours were joined by vanilla and cinnamon notes that transition smoothly to black peppercorn and caramel elements in the lengthy finish.
I was unable to locate grape varieties and percentages, only that the blend can include Zinfandel, Syrah and Merlot
