COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains at Wintergreen, Virginia is a cidery overlooking the Rockfish River. Here a custom blend of Virginia apples is crafted to make a premium hard cider with a rounded, full-bodied apple taste. Rich and beautifully effervescent, Crimson Ridge is exceptionally well-balanced, bringing out the very best in Virginia apples.

On tap at Bold Rock. Apple, of course. To me nothing memorable, and after awhile all of these ciders taste very similar.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from the Leesburg Costco. Nice to see them carrying some local stuff. Very light straw color (white wine like) with no head. Vibrant apple nose. A little off-dry. Tart apple skins, slight yeast, and white wine notes. Pleasant lingering tartness. Just a hint of mustiness. Rather enjoyable.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle sample @ Bold Rock. Light gold with a tiny head. The nose is tart apple, a bit of dirty pear, woodland. The taste is very dry. Tart apple. Clean citrus finish. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, more complex than the standard offerings. Agreeably spare.
