Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Opaque deep ruby; aromas of stewed blueberry, black cherry, tobacco and dark chocolate; on the palate it is full bodied and dry with a kiss of sweetness; the flavours echo the aromas leading to a long and grippy finish.
Production Notes
The grapes for our 2014 Apothic Dark were selected from Lodi, where sunlight and diverse soil structures result in wine with complexity and balanced acidity. The 2014 growing season in California was ideal, the dry, warm spring and summer weather brought an earlier harvest. Across the state, harvest yielded grapes with ripe fruit flavors and vibrant aromas.
Winemaker Notes
Grapes for Apothic Dark were harvested at night to ensure they were cool upon arrival at the winery for processing. Grapes were then cold soaked for twenty four hours prior to fermentation. Fermentation occurred at a maximum of 90° in order to maximize the extraction of dark fruit flavors and color in temperature-controlled cone-sweep and upright tanks for up to seven days. A variety of yeasts were used to bring out unique flavors and features from each lot. Following fermentation, the wine was influenced by a variety of oak to add complexity and enhance the coffee and mocha flavors
Other Notes
Juicy rich blend of Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, & Teroldego!
