Book club met last Sunday and there were two wines that stood out. Actually, this book club is really turning into a wine club in disguise. No arguments here. Since the weather has turned chilly, I’ll start with the red this week. I’ve mentioned Apothic Red before, but have you tried another wine from this family called Apothic Crush? I am certainly crushing on this one! It’s a blend of Petite Sirah and Pinot Noir. You can taste lots of juicy red fruits with some salty caramel and chocolate which gives it a very smooth finish. This wine is a limited release so buy it while you still can. It sells for about $8.99 at Binny’s and Woodman’s.
Instead of providing just the tasting notes, I am attaching a new rating to each wine. This doesn’t mean much since everyone is different and my impression is less than expert. Still, I think it would help so that you can see how enthusiastic or disenchanted you might be over each wine. I gave this wine 🍷🍷🍷🍷 .
So here’s a breakdown for each rating:
🍷 – wouldn’t try this wine again
🍷🍷 – drink one glass and switch to something else
🍷🍷🍷 – overall fairly good taste, but lacking a smooth finish or something might be slightly off
🍷🍷🍷🍷- exceptionally smooth and consistent after drinking more than one glass
Cheers my dears!
