Apothic Inferno 2018
Apothic Inferno is a small-batch, limited release red blend that is aged in whiskey barrels for 60 days to deliver a masterful and unexpected taste experience. On the smooth, rich palate, Apothic Inferno offers notes of ripe red and dark fruit, like blackberry and plum, that combine with layers of maple, vanilla and charred spice on the long, clean finish.
This very full-bodied wine has oak for days, 60 of them to be precise, because that's how long it was aged in whiskey barrels. Effusive pencil shaving and cedar-shingle aromas lead to even more concentrated cedar and menthol flavors that coat the tongue and sides of the mouth. Recommended for oak fanatics.
