Apothic Wines, a brand of Modesto, Calif.-based E.J. Gallo Winery, announced the national release of its first-ever limited-edition Apothic Sparkling Red, available at wine retailers beginning today, Sept. 3.

The color of an ‘80s red leather jacket, Apothic's scarlet sparkler was crafted to be refreshing with its lines of ruby bubbles and its notes of bright cherries, zingy citrus and red apples, the company says.

"Our fans love sparkling wine, but wish it could be less pretentious, less delicate and more flavorful," said Heather Austin, Apothic's director of marketing, in a statement. "Apothic Sparkling Red is a complete departure from all things conventional sparkling wine. It's not white, it's unexpectedly red and surprisingly refreshing. It's not arrogant or pretentious; it's rocking out with friends or watching your favorite streaming show. And most importantly, it's seriously good."

The limited-edition Apothic Sparkling Red now is available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $15.99, while supplies last.
