sale price $11.99
The 2020 Apothic Red is our first daringly original blend of California-grown red grapes. Zinfandel leads the blend with silky layers of blackberry, black cherry with a hint of black pepper. Syrah and Merlot deliver undercurrents of ripe blueberry, boysenberry and a soft, plush mouthfeel. Cabernet Sauvignon adds more dimension with notes of black currant while bold tannins deliver a hint of intrigue. The finish is long and smooth with lingering notes of vanilla and mocha from the oak we selected for aging. <br><br> <b>Viticulture Notes:</b><br> We selected the majority of the grapes for Apothic Red from the Lodi and Central Valley areas in California. We sourced the Zinfandel from Lodi, a premium producer of intensely concentrated, silky textured fruit. California’s 2020 vintage experienced a cool, mild growing season with an accelerated heat spell in August, resulting in early ripening. Vintage 2020 in California shows vibrant acidity and concentrated flavors. <br><br> <b>Winemaking Notes</b><br> The grapes were de-stemmed before some whole-cluster fermentation. We fermented the 2020 Apothic Red in a combination of cone-sweep and upright tanks ranging from 4 to 6 days at a temperature averaging 85-88°F. Across all lots, we exercised meticulous temperature control and managed heat spikes through fermentation where needed to maximize the extraction of color and dark fruit notes.

Viognier in the blend adds intriguing aromatic floral and tropical fruit characteristics. This luscious wine offers a silky-smooth texture and a bright, lively finish. <br><br> <b>Viticulture Notes:</b><br> We selected the majority of the grapes for Apothic Chardonnay from the unique Lodi Delta region in California. With its cool evenings and warm days, Lodi is known as a producer of fragrant, concentrated and silky textured fruit. California’s 2021 growing season was cool and mild, with a heat spell in August that resulted in an earlier than average harvest. Wines showcase vibrant acidity and concentrated flavors.  <br><br> <b>Winemaking Notes:</b><br> We harvested a majority of the grapes for our Apothic Chardonnay at night in cool temperatures to preserve the character of the fruit. The fruit was whole-cluster pressed, then the juice settled and was racked to tank to optimize clarity and mouthfeel. The Chardonnay underwent partial malolactic fermentation and was fermented on selected oak with sur lie aging, enhancing the wine’s delicate fruit flavors while adding subtle caramel, cream and spice characteristics. A portion of the Chardonnay and Viognier were fermented in stainless-steel tanks.
