Corinna Horton rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I bought the Apolthic Red for the label, I'm a big fan of swirlies. It made me want to go goth and quote Anne Rice. Instead I wore yoga pants and served it with braised pork belly; which is like kind of like vampire poetry for bacon lovers.

A swirly little blend of syrah, zinfandel and merlot, it's a new world wine made in the old world style and for a 'table wine' it finishes beautifully. A smooth, plush mouth and creamy, fruity flavour; a touch of plum a hint of cherry, a splash of vanilla and the bite of moca. It's simple but intense. It makes a great party wine because it pairs so beautifully, just an easy going Californian.
