If you aren’t quite into the Halloween spirit yet, try a sip of this delicious wine and you will instantly embrace your darker, slightly sinister side. This wine is a gorgeous, deep purple when you pour it and tastes like coffee and berries. The cork is a distinctive black and falls into the keeper category if you hoard wine corks. At under $8 from Wal-Mart you really can’t beat the price either. This is a limited release so try it while you still can.
Bottom line: this wine is not subtle or tightly wound. It packs a punch and has a heavy, velvety feel on your tongue.
We drank the Apothic at our last book club meeting to discuss A Discovery Of Witches. The book is obviously about witches, but there are a few vampires and demons* tossed into the mix too. If you have an appreciation for wine, the author also taps into that topic quite a bit as well. 😉
Besides this wine, there were a few others that we tried at the meeting, all receiving glowing reviews. (To be written about in the future.)
Rating: 🍷🍷🍷/4 wine glasses
Do you have any plans to dress up this Halloween? If our costumes turn out, I might share those with you next week so stay tuned…
