Apothic Pinot Noir 2019
Our 2019 Pinot Noir reveals layers of bright ripe cherry and crushed raspberries with a dash of red currant. Silky tannins round out the mouthfeel with ribbons of caramel and vanilla, which lead to a delicate, lingering finish. We selected Pinot Noir grapes from Lodi for their red fruit profiles and soft approachable tannins. Unique Graciano grapes were blended into the wine to brighten the acidity and notes of red currant. The grapes were destemmed with marginal crushing and cold soaked overnight to encourage extraction of the fruit's alluring color and tannins.
