A blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is rich and velvety. My husband noticed how easy it was to remove the cork. The cork should be flexible, elastic, soft enough to be compressible and hard enough to hold together as this one was . We could smell hints of black cherry and vanilla. The finish was good and was not bitter at all. The taste is a nice complexity of plum, strawberry, black cherry, and mulberry. There was a small hint of chocolate. The wine was inspired and name after Apotheca a place where vintners blended and stored their most coveted concoctions more than 800 hundred years ago.
The 2009 Apothic Red is a good red wine to serve at parties because it’s flavors will not only work well with many dishes , but the flavors are likely to be enjoyed by a variety of wine drinkers. It’s hard to find a wine that enough different people can enjoy but the 2009 Apothic Red is probably a good option to try. However it may be better to avoid sweet dishes when drinking the Apothic Red. The flavors are even more pleasing when the wine is allowed to breathe a bit.https://www.smalltownwoman.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Beth-1.pdf
