Wonderfully refreshing, tart and slightly sweet. A bit simpler than the Wild Washington.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours translucent, light amber with a few bubbles. Nice, rather complex aroma showing lots of skin. Med body, or close. It’s tannic/astringent, so much so that it suggests wood. And it is very dry. Nice change from many American ciders. Oh, and there are apple flavors!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden body. Sweet ripe golden apple, cinnamon, mild sulfer aromas. Light bodied. Semisweet apple, yeast, sulfer flavors--not bad.

750, capped. Pours a crystal clear pale gold with no head, lace, or legs to speak of. Very intermittent occasional nucleation activity. Pleasant mild golden apple nose, more like a slightly lemony chardonnay than an apple cider, especially given the stillness. Creamy, medium, nearly still body. Light lemon, golden apple, red apple, and very faint green apple on the mid-palate--immediately makes you wonder what you could do with pork, chicken, or even fish if you used this as a replacement for white wine in a sauce.
