Apothic Red Winemaker’s Blend 2012, California


An opinion divider…

Apothic Red Winemaker’s Blend 2012, California (£9.99 widely available)
Rich, juicy and round, sweet but not excessively so, with a slightly confected blackberry jam/blackcurrant pastille character alongside the creamy vanilla, coffee and chocolate cherry liqueur flavours. C+

(tried this later that evening with a local wine group and it was fascinating to see how it split opinion, with some thinking it too sweet, and others – usually the less seasoned drinkers – being made to feel guilty for enjoying it so much)
