2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted from a 375 mL bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Aroma is just like a white wine with just a bit of apple. Flavor is just like a slightly apple flavored white wine. Isn’t this just a white wine with apples??

The influence of the Chardonnay barrels definitely comes through, giving vanilla and buttery qualities - the result a very vinous cider. In fact, you even have to remind yourself that it is a cider and not a wine. I do prefer my ciders more refreshing and quaffable.
