2012 Apothic Red Winemakers Blend

apothic-red-winemaker-s-blend-california-usa-10469821Michael Dresser, writing in the Baltimore Sun, picked out this Californian blend featuring Syrah, Merlot and Zinfandel, which he described as a “dry wine” which packs a “gentle punch.”

He said: “This blend of California red varieties is a concentrated by soft-textured wine that packs a lot of flavour.

“Widely distributed – and often on sale at attractive prices – this Apothic offers deep blackberry fruit and flavours of chocolate, black pepper and herbs.

“Though a dry wine, it leaves the impression of sweetness – in a good way, It’s not a complex wine but it packs a (gentle) punch.”
