Review On Apothic WineWednesday, March 27, 2013

Back in November while I was in Florida, a friend of my family invited me over to her condo one evening for a glass of wine and some conversation. And before she went to the store that afternoon to pick up a few bottles, I suggested that she look for a particular brand of wine that I normally drink because it was awesome and wanted her to try it. However, they didn’t have the brand I suggested there, so she tried a brand that one of the employees in the store highly recommended.
Personally I enjoy trying different wines and brands, so when she offered me a glass of Apothic, I didn’t hesitate.
Well, after I took my first sip….I thought I had died and gone to HEAVEN.
Have you ever drank a wine that smelled and tasted so incredible that you felt as though you were having an “out of body” experience?
I’m serious, I sat there with my eyes closed after taking my first sip, and could have sworn I heard someone beckoning, “COME TO THE LIGHT, RON….COME TO THE LIGHT!”
Yes, it's THAT good.
What I love so much about Apothic Red is that it’s full-bodied, yet smooooth as satin. I don’t think I’ve ever tasted a red wine that had that much flavor without it being too sweet. I prefer wine slightly on the drier side. This red wine contains the perfect balance of four different grapes. You can drink it alone, or pair it with food.
The brambly spice of Zinfandel, dark fruit flavors of Syrah, the bold notes of Cabernet Sauvignon and the smooth elegance of Merlot unite to create this captivating red blend.
Apothic Red reveals intense fruit aromas and flavors of rhubarb and black cherry, complemented by hints of mocha, chocolate, brown spice and vanilla. The plush, velvety mouthfeel and the smooth finish round out this intriguing, full-bodied red blend.
Now because I don’t drink white wine, I honestly can’t give you first-hand feedback on Apothic White. However, someone I know very well has tried it and said that it was BEYOND fabulous.
This latest release brings tropical aromas and flavors together with hints of spice, creating an enchanting white blend.
Apothic White is an approachable blend that combines Chardonnay, Riesling and Moscato to create a luscious, vibrant wine in the bold style of Apothic. Intense flavors of peach, pineapple, honey and vanilla spice make this smooth white blend unforgettable.
Average price: $11.00 - red or white
So if you’re like me and enjoy trying different wines, you’ve got to try Apothic.
You will LOVE it. I swear.
