Inspired by the Apotheca, a mysterious place where wine was blended and stored in 13th century Europe, Apothic Red offers a truly unique wine experience. A masterful blend of rich zinfandel, smooth merlot, flavorful syrah and bold cabernet sauvignon creates layers of dark red fruit complemented by hints of vanilla and mocha. www. apothic.com.
