Apothic Inferno is a limited time small batch California blend that just returned to the shelves at the beginning of September. “A new blend emerges from the flames of a time-honored craft, creating the most unexpected and masterful encounter.” This limited release red blend wine has been aged in whiskey barrels for 60 days. They call this a “wine with a whiskey soul”, now that truly sounds like pain relief.
Debbie Juergernson is a master apothecary…or winemaker, if that’s what you wanna call it. She uses only the most distinct California grapes in her concoctions. “I strive to tell a story with each blend of Apothic”, she says. Apothic Inferno’s story starts off with it ‘s mysteriously dark red and blackberry color. The nose brings whiffs of chocolate covered strawberries and smokey hints of campfire. Then, red and dark fruit flavors combine with layers of maple and spice, giving way to a long, clean finish.
Now, Apothic Inferno is not your average wine, it’s nothing something you would want to pair with food. Its strong flavors are often overpowering of food (besides rich chocolate and cheesecake). This is a wonderfully mysterious and sensual wine good for relaxing by the fire or even a girls night. It is absolutely beyond worth it for the price. Wine with a whiskey soul and a hauntingly addictive flavor,
