Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7. Apothic Wines 2009 Wine Review
A round, plummy, medium-bodied blend of zinfandel, merlot and syrah grapes that delivers plenty of pleasure. Some mocha notes and a generous, mouth-filling smooth texture. Yum! Food pairings: pepper steak, hamburgers, grilled pork chops, meat lovers pizza. This Apothic Wines 2009 was reviewed by March 7, 2013 Natalie MacLean

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
Alicia rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review: Absolute favorite! This wine has an amazing robust flavor that brings excitement to the palate. Love this wine!!
Aaron Waldman rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review: This is phenomenal!! The price says "table wine - don't expect much", but it's a big, fruity, complex red. I'd describe it as a merlot with more breadth and depth. And the kicker is that the stores have it for $9.99, and now Costco for $7.99.
Tara Noland rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review: This is one of my favorite wines at the moment. It is a big and bold wine from the perfect blend of zinfandel, merlot, syrah and cabernert. It will for sure appeal to the masses.
Wanda rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review: I love the blend of Syrah, Zinfandel, and Merlot in this wine. It's one we always keep in our wine rack. Big and bold, smooth & intense. Delicious with a burger!
Nicole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Easy drinking, fruity red wine. Great wine for summer drinking. One of my favorites right now.
Jen rated this wine as 89/100
Nick Onischuk rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review: APOTHIC RED - A very nice blend from California. Beautiful aromas of spice, raspberry, blackberry and a hint of vanilla. Medium bodied wine with a long finish of fruit and vanilla. 88/100 - tasted September 14, 2013
Sara M rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review: Easy drinking-not suitable for aging
Travis Oke rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review: There has been much hoopla about this wine so I thought I would give it a go. I'm afraid that it may be the expensive American equivalent of Yellow Tail and Fuzion combined. I see why it appeals to the masses - it''s very sweet but certainly non-offensive. And isn't that the winning marketing strategy. I would think that they could come up with a clever name and label - like surfers chasing penguins or something.
The 2009 Apothic Red reveals intense fruit aromas and flavors of rhubarb and black cherry that are complemented by hints of mocha and vanilla. The plush, velvety mouthfeel and smooth finish round out this intriguing, full-bodied red blend.
