Claria Calderone rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

The evening called for something different and moody, Apothic Dark it is. I must admit it was pleasant. After a sense to the nose, the wines aroma was coffe-like with a dash of fruitiness. One sip and you know right away its a blend of blackberries and blueberries blended with some rich chocolate possibly? A bit of a dessert in wine type sense. Dark and rich purple in color, its a perfect choice for a Valentines day dinner over a fire place, or a specialty to break out and compliment a lamb dish.
I was skeptical but now I'm not, as it may not be an every day wine, but its a special day kinda wine.




Natalie's Review

Apothic Dark 2013, California, United States: Liquid fudge, coffee dark roast: a very sweet wine that could almost be consumed for dessert. Highly confected; this reminds me of a marketing-driven "concept wine" that makes a bridge to wine for Coca Cola drinkers. Drink: 2013-2015. 392654 13.50% M 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 87/100.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
