Deep, intensely flavorful and velvet-smooth, our 2020 Apothic Crush is a luscious Red Blend brimming with appealing fruit character. Ripe black cherry, wild blackberry and raspberry fruit notes are layered on the inviting palate with toffee and milk chocolate. The long, lingering finish adds hints of rich, silky caramel. A blend of Petite Sirah, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, this is a Crush that demands to be shared.
We selected the majority of the grapes for Apothic Crush from Lodi and other bold regions in California’s Central Valley. Lodi is known as a producer of intensely concentrated, silky textured fruit. California’s 2020 vintage experienced a cool, mild growing season with an accelerated heat spell in August, resulting in early ripening. Vintage 2020 in California shows vibrant acidity and concentrated flavors.
We harvested a majority of the grapes for our Apothic Crush at night in cool temperatures to preserve the character of the fruit. The Pinot Noir was cold soaked for 1-2 days, then fermented between 80° to 85°F. The other varieties were fermented between 86° to 90° F. To create a silky mouthfeel and toasted caramel characteristics, we aged the blend in a mixture of French and American oak.
