Defy convention. Apothic Red is a masterful blend of intense flavors and luscious texture creates a truly unique experience. Zinfandel lends notes of dark fruit and subtle spice while Merlot and Syrah bring hints of black fruit and a smooth mouthfeel. They are complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon that contributes a firm structure and bold flavors. All of the varietals combine to offer layers of dark fruit that are enhanced by soft vanilla and mocha tones leading to a soft, lasting finish.View all products by Apothic
Apothic Red is regularly one of the most purchased wines in America, and it's no surprise why - it's easy-drinking, unpretentious, and delicious. Winemaker Debbie Juergenson creates this wine in a field blend style, similar to that made famous most recently by Orin Swift's Prisoner. While the blend changes from year to year, depending on what the vineyard produces, the result always delivers a luscious, full-bodied, extremely ripe, slightly candied, crowd-pleaser of a wine.
The backbone of Apothic Red is a blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. You'll find an intertwining of black cherry, vanilla and mocha aromas with baking spices, southern French herbs, and silky, plush tannins on the palate. The finish, sweet chocolate and ripe cherries, lingers briefly...which is perfect since it invites you to take another sip.
It's an extremely approachable wine. It looks great in a tall, sophisticated red wine glass that belongs on primetime TV, but feels right at home in a a Solo cup. Ideally you'll give it a little chill first. Mid 60 degrees Fahrenheit if we're being techincal, but 30-40 minutes in the fridge does thet trick. If that ends up a little cold for our liking cold, just warm it up by putting your hands on the outside of the glass. While Apothic Red is perfectly enjoyable on it's own, many foods do work well. In particular, look for salty, mildly sweet or moderately spicy foods. Think tapas, olives, nuts, popcorn, macerated fruit, cheeses or a well-seasoned steak.
Apothic is a true original. Named for the mysterious place, Apotheca, where vintners stored their most coveted concoctions in 13th century Europe, Apothic blends fuse Old World intrigue with modern sophistication. Winemaker Debbie Juergenson lets the character and flavor of each varietal guide the shape of her wines. In addition to Apothic Red, Apothic White, Apothic Dark and Apothic Crush, Apothic also offers a selection of limited release blends.
