About

88

"Apothic’s 2010 Red Blend is slightly more serious. An 850,000-case blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, it was aged completely in tank. Big and fruity with a Rhone-like personality, it offers admirable purity, texture and length. Overall, it is a delicious, uncomplicated, straightforward, surprisingly intense, dry red to enjoy over the next year."

Product Description:

"A captivating blend of three distinct grapes, with the dark fruit flavors of Syrah, brambly spice of Zinfandel, and a smooth elegance of Merlot. Apothic Red reveals intense fruit aromas and flavors of rhubarb and black cherry that are complemented by hints of mocha, chocolate, brown spice and vanilla. The plush, velvety mouthfeel and smooth finish round out this intriguing, full-bodied red blend."
