As a lover of the Apothic brand wines, I knew I had to try this one when it came out! It was really tasty - and I was happy to try it. I might have it again as a dessert wine but found it a bit on the sweet side compared to their other blends.
It has a unique taste not found in many wines. Due to the cost is do not purchase very often, although this is one of my favorites. The one thing I have noticed is that there is no after taste the next morning, you don't wake up with the taste of old wine.
The Apothic wines are very seasonable in price.
I found that the original red wine needed to be aerated
in order for it to taste decent. The crush version was
quite nice. There were some cocoa undertones. It
wasn't bitter and it didn't leave the mouth feeling dry.
