Happened upon Apothic Red at a wine bar and decided to bring a bottle home to enjoy. It wasn’t difficult to find at a local wine shop and the price was only $8. The wine is a blend of Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon and which creates flavors which pair well will food or even with just a glass. The website notes Vanilla, Black Cherry, and Mocha, but I got much more complexity from Oak, Berries, Chocolate, and a myriad of other flavors. The finish is just dry with a big body and IMO it creates a heck of a drinkable wine in a modest price point. If you are looking for an affordable and crowd pleasing red blend get a bottle of Apothic Red and thank me later. 😉
