Apothic Wine + Discount on Cooking Classes

The day before my bachelorette party, this arrived on my doorstep:

Coincidence? I think not.

I've been a fan of Apothic Red for quite some time now (I even blogged about it back in 2011). When the folks at Apothic caught wind of my love for their Red, they kindly sent me a bottle - along with a bottle each of their White and Rose. I had never tried the White or Rose, and considering the impending heat wave at the time, I was excited to.

The Apothic White is a blend of chardonnay, riesling, and sweet moscato. Chilled, this wine boasted subtle fruit flavors (think peach and pineapple), and was only slightly sweet, which I love in a white wine. 

The Rose - which is a limited edition wine - blends zinfandel and cabernet sauvignon. The aroma was pretty acidic, but thankfully the flavor was not. This wine punched a refreshing strawberry taste with a not-too-sweet finish. It even had a hint of effervescence, which was welcome on a humid day.

I was a fan of both new-to-me Apothic wines that I tried, and I still love the Red. They're all just very drinkable, not to mention affordable (each bottle costs $14, on average - although I've seen the Red for less at many liquor stores). 

Have you ever tried Apothic Wine before? What's your review?

This wine was complimentary, but all opinions are my own.

  1. I tried the Apothic reds and whites when you first reviewed them, and your comments were right on target. They remain one of my 'go to' wines for dining out since they're often quite reasonably priced at restaurants. That rose sounds so nice! Rose never gets much respect. Probably due to the nasty white-zin that is hawked everywhere.

    1. The rose was great. You should definitely try it!

  2. I love the red and the rose. They're affordable and so flavorful. I definitely had a lot of the rose this summer.
