So we were going on last week about changing it up a bit and getting away from Zinfandels – which coincided nicely with the fact that the last couple of bottles we’ve tried haven’t been Zinfandels (a fluke of luck, not planned I assure you). This week we have the Apothic Red Winemaker’s Blend, a basic red table wine.
And here are the results: the Apothic had both some chocolate and tobacco overtones (different from the Zinfandel varietal). We also found it to have a sort of prune taste – almost like a rich old plum. There was an absence of the dryness that indicates a high tannin level, so not a lot of tannins. It was also pretty smooth drinking.
Overall, a nice, full-bodied table wine. Give it a little room to breathe and enjoy.
Until next time!
