Apothic Inferno Aged in Whiskey Barrels 2016
Apothic Inferno is a small-batch, limited release red blend that is aged in whiskey barrels for 60 days to deliver a masterful and unexpected taste experience. This Wine with a Whiskey Soul emerges from the flames of the time-honored craft of whiskey-making. A time-intensive barrel-aging process enhances the wine’s rich flavors and aromas. On the palate, Apothic Inferno offers red and dark fruit flavors that combine with layers of maple and spice, giving way to a long, clean finish.
A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.
While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.
Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.
