Apothic Red Winemaker's Blend
2019, Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, U.S.A.
Inspired by "Apotheca," a mysterious place where wine was blended and stored in 13th century Europe, the wines of Apothic are truly unique in style and taste. Our winemaker, Debbie Juergenson, crafts bold, captivating Apothic blends by using only the most distinctive California grapes. Apothic Red is a blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Zinfandel lends notes of dark fruit and subtle spice, while Merlot and Syrah give Apothic Red a decadent, smooth mouthfeel. They are complimented by Cabernet Sauvignon which gives a firm structure and bold flavors. All of the varietals combine to offer layers of black cherry and dark fruits that are enhanced by soft vanilla and mocha, finally giving way to an ultra-smooth mouthfeel and finish. (from the vintner)
