Let me first start by saying how much I love Apothic Red and White! It’s not too often that I find a brand of wine who’s red and white I both love. Upon appearance Apothic Dark looks like the perfect wine to put out at a Halloween party. The wine itself is a very dark reddish-purple and the bottle has a black label and black cork. I absolutely loved the spooky appearance of this wine. Unfortunately I can’t say the same about the taste. This wine has A LOT of sediment. I let the bottle sit for three days and then ended up straining it twice. The taste starts out smooth but finishes dry with a feeling of sediment stuck to your tongue and cheeks. Not something I enjoyed! Overall, I was pretty disappointed and won’t be picking up another bottle of this anytime soon.
