COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not your mama’s cider. Roxbury Russet, Nehou, Muscat de Bernay, and other traditional “bittersweet” (high tannin, low acid) cider apples make this blend unexpectedly complex, tannic, and vinous, with a long finish. We sourced these scarce cider varieties from two small orchards in western Sonoma County, planted years ago with high hopes but nearly forgotten since. Exceptionally food-friendly. Pair with aged cheeses, oysters, Dungeness crab, charcuterie, all things pork, roast poultry, and hearty vegetables.

Bottle @ Upcider. Slightly hazed golden pour with a shirt lived white foam. Light tartness, lots of apple, and a mild sweetness. Nice yeastiness. Light tartness and sweetness on the flavor. Tart apple skins, yeast, and a bit of sugar. Lightly tannic. Pretty solid.
