Sipping Fine Wine

This is a limited release wine. I am not sure of the grapes, maybe a little of whatever they had left! Ruby with dark fruits on a sweet nose. The palate is syrupy sweet that although feels smooth had a bit off taste. Short finish ending with a sweet spice finish. Not for me. Pass. Tasting Sample.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, wood, licorice, spices, vanilla extract, earth, chocolates, mocha, coffee, smoke and black pepper.

Medium to full bodied and buttery, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cherries, figs, cloves, herbs, vanilla, oak, spices, chocolates, earth, mocha, peppercorn and tobacco.

Medium finish with round tannins, tangy raspberries and spices.

This Californian Red Blend is simple, but very enjoyable, even by itself. Well balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

A good sipping wine and good for parties, as it is very affordable. A little jammy with an artificial feel, but not bad as a happy hour red.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (30 minutes).

I paired it with light appetizers.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

85 points.

$10.

Nice a smooth! Love the hint of sweet! Nice layers. I just wish they would name the grapes in the blends on the label.$9 at Kroger

Decent, not as good at other Apothic blends, but not too bad. Slightly velvety after the first taste, very red fruity, not much else.
