About Apothic Dark
Apothic Dark Red Blend Wine seamlessly integrates dark jammy fruit flavors, especially blueberry and blackberry, with enticing notes of coffee and dark chocolate for a rich and smooth mouthfeel and layers of texture. High quality grapes yield a great balance of acidity and sugar on the palate.
The grapes for Apothic Dark Red Blend Wine were fermented at a maximum of 90 degrees to increase the extraction of fruit characteristics. Fermentation occurred in temperature-controlled cone-sweep and upright tanks for up to 7 days. A variety of yeasts were used to bring out unique flavors and features from each lot. Following fermentation, the wine was influenced by a variety of oak to add complexity.
More than 800 years ago, vintners blended and stored their most coveted concoctions in a mysterious place called Apotheca. In late 2005, a Master Winemaker envisioned an epic red wine combining Old World traditions of blending while realizing a markedly New World style. Thus began the path that led his protégé, winemaker Boyd Morrison, to select grapes from California’s bountiful vineyards for this new blended red and many others.
