Review: 2018 Apothic “Cab” Cabernet Sauvignon California

Apothic is known for its aggressively flavorful, low-price red blends, and now it’s making its way into varietal wines for the first time, with a 2018 cabernet sauvignon.

Alas, the wine is unapproachable from any angle, a ballbuster of a wine that is unctuous with notes of cheap candy, way-overripe berries, and Russell Stover-class milk chocolate. Dense and saccharine on the finish, it lays on the palate with the nuance of a cherry Coke. Avoid.

    I agree. It’s a very cheap blend of everything but the sink. Very hard to try to drink this and I know my lips are purple after the first drink. Will never buy this again.
