Review: **** $$ Apothic White, California, 2012 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Apothic White.

Original tasting and review : This is Apothic White, California, 2012, an eclectic blend  of chardonnay, pinot grigio and riesling, finished at a mere 12% alcohol and first sampled 3 years from vintage date, in March, 2015.

In the glass: Clear, faintest hint of yellow.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows a mix of steely grassiness and cream, suggesting the varietal mix.  From the aroma, seems like this will be sweet and mouth-filling, perhaps punching about its modest alcohol leve.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact vastly layered and velvet-robed waves of soft fruit flavors.  Incredibly rich and yet incredibly aromatic in the same sip!  Soft, not cloying, hints of sweetness, but more about aromatic flavors.  Makes you hungry for the next sip.

In summary: Overall, rates four stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Awesome best value at an attractive price point.
