Apothic Dark Wine
A few weeks ago, I received a complimentary bottle of Apothic Dark wine, a seasonal offering from Apothic Wines.
To quote from the news release, Apothic Dark "combines flavors of blueberry and blackberry with enticing notes of coffee and dark chocolate for a rich and smooth mouthfeel with layers of texture. Apothic Dark's bold and decadent taste is the perfect accompaniment to hearty autumn fare, as well as confections and desserts, such as chocolates and fruit tarts. Apothic Dark is also great for holiday entertaining and makes the perfect hostess/host gift!"
Apothic Dark does indeed combine fruity flavors with rich overtones of chocolate, making for a complex yet accessible wine that goes well both with hearty meat dishes and dessserts, but which is also enjoyable on its own.
You'll find Apothic Dark at major area retailers. It retails for about $14 a bottle. For more information, go to apothic.com.
