More than 800 years ago, vintners blended and stored their most coveted concoctions in a mysterious place called Apotheca. In late 2005, a Master Winemaker envisioned an epic red wine that would combine Old World blending traditions with a markedly New World style. Thus began the path that led his protégé, Apothic winemaker Boyd Morrison, to create Apothic Red using the most distinctive grapes from California’s renowned vineyards: Zinfandel for its spicy nature, Syrah for its dark fruit flavors, bold Cabernet Sauvignon and the smooth elegance of Merlot unite to create this captivating red blend.
This is a complex and interesting wine. The bouquet shows chocolate and cherry flavours come through clearly but remain subtle, and balance well with the full bodied character of the wine. The palate continues with dark fruit flavours of blueberry and blackberry with opulent notes of coffee and dark chocolate on the finish.
