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.
