Inspired by an Apotheca, a mysterious place where wine was blended and stored in 13th century Europe, Apothic Red is an intriguing red wine blend of three unexpected grapes – Syrah, Zinfandel & Merlot that offers an enchanting wine experience.
Now available in Vancouver, this unique California wine was developed by two winemakers who wanted to explore new territories in red wine blending, creating a blend that’s in a category by itself to deliver the best of both worlds: the smooth character of a blend and the boldness of a single varietal.
Apothic Red’s complex, captivating taste is the perfect accompaniment to hearty meat dishes and spicy tapas. It also pairs well with confections and desserts, such as chocolates and fruit tarts. It has flavours of blackberry and dark cherry and hints of mocha, chocolate and brown spice and its plush, smooth finish rounds out this full-bodied blend.
Apothic Red is now available at wine and liquor stores across BC and retails for $16. More information is available at www.apothic.com.
