A pioneer in creating innovative blends that push the envelope of what is expected from a wine, Apothic takes its fans on a new journey to experience wine in a whole new way. By combining years of wine-making knowledge and expertise with innovative techniques inspired by the time-honored craft of whiskey-making, Apothic is bringing a masterful and unexpected taste experience to wine and whiskey fans alike with its new, small-batch, limited release red blend, Apothic Inferno.
Aged in charred, white oak whiskey barrels for 60 days, Apothic Inferno blends the red and dark fruit flavors of its wine with layers of maple and spice, giving way to a long, clean finish. “The result is a wine with rich flavor and distinctive attitude,” says Apothic Winemaker, Debbie Juergenson. “It may not have whiskey in it, but it’s wine with a whiskey soul.”
Crafted in California, each batch of Apothic Inferno undergoes a time-intensive, barrel-aging process. The unique character and flavor profiles offer wine enthusiasts the opportunity to discover a bold, new experience. The barrels – cut, shaped, and bound by steel before being charred with flames – were first used to age whiskey for years prior to becoming the home of Apothic’s new red blend.
“Those who have come to love Apothic know that we’re always looking to defy convention with unique blends and bold flavors,” said Christine Jagher, Marketing Director for Apothic Wines. “Apothic Inferno brings a rebellious attitude to the wine category – even the label’s dark colors and intertwined graphics elicit a fiery style, the perfect addition to our portfolio.”
Apothic Inferno is available on shelves wherever wine is sold, nationwide, for a limited time with a suggested retail price of $16.99. The wine has an ABV of 15.9% and is offered in 750ml bottles.
