I finally got a date with Chicago’s new wine on the scene, Apothic Red. Vanilla notes with soft cocoa flavors that were complimented by sweet berries. For all those first dates, it’s seriously a great wine selection. It had character with every sip. For the price, I highly recommend it for everyday wine.
Note: I found it $2.00 cheaper at Binny’s compared to the $10.99 at Whole Foods in Chicago.

1. Category: Crisp
2. Wine Type: Macabeo
3. Country: Spain
4. Price: $8.99
5. Notes: Refreshing and crisp young wine with no aging makes it so fun to drink. This wine is extremely popular in Spain during the hot summer sun. Although slightly acidic, the pineapple undertones make it fun when shared. Go ahead….drink, laugh, and eat the way Spanish do!
