Apothic Wines-Apothic Red-Winemaker’s Blend-Zinfandel-Syrah-Merlot-California-2009-$9.99-A artificial fake sweet candy nose, dark amber in color.  I actually enjoyed the 2008 vintage of this blend, not this year, fake flavors, undrinkable, not even worth keeping for cooking wine, not good at any price.               NR                CR-70                Good down the drain.
