2008 Apothic Red: Smooth, slightly sweet, good for the price

nov. 5, 2010: i picked this up at winetree based on the recommendations of dennis and tim. this californian is a blend of syrah, red zinfandel and merlot, 13.1 percent alcohol, and it cost about $11 there (though it was about $8.99 at the schnucks on north green river, we noticed later). i thought it had a brown sugar nose, and the flavor tasted a lot like smoky bacon bathed in maple syrup -- probably due to the zin. greg thought the flavor was almost like candy. this was a good wine for the price. we'd get it again.
