November 2, 2014 – Review of: Apothic Red Blend

?/10 $15.95 Apothic red (California). Very sweet and fruity smell, can actually smell a hint if mocha. Clear dark ruby colour. Recommended by my friend Amanda B, this one is distinctive, a very different wine from anything I’ve had before. It is a combination of Zinfandel, Syrah, Merlot, and Cab Sauv. Says medium bodied but I feel that it’s more full bodied, bold, and unique. Long finish, lingers on your tongue. Oaky mocha/vanilla taste. Definitely sip this one to feel out the many different flavours. I am intrigued as to why I don’t fully understand this wine, which is why I refuse to rate it (as I would probably rate low) but It may just require a very expert palate to understand and appreciate. Definitely wouldn’t say this is a good beginner vino, but if you are hosting a taste-test, this would definitely be unique contribution!
