On a snowy Wisconsin evening we are cooking pasta, and drinking Apothic Red Blend. A mix of Zinfadel, Syrah, Cabernet Savuvigon, and smooth Merlot. I've had this inexpensive wine many times, and it never disappoints me. Low tannins, actually sort of sweet for a red, and berry everything in taste. ALC. 13/5%, Modesto, Ca.

Slightly tannic on the front with a sweet cherry syrup flavor on the back end. Good, not great. I wouldn’t turn it down, but also wouldn’t eat with a steak.

Nice label if you’ve already open more at a party. It seems more like a juicy blend than actual wine. Imperceptible tannins and strong unpleasant finish.
