Deep amber color. Spicy, fruity aromas and flavors of dreamsicle, chocolate halva, and hint of herbs and peppercorn with a supple, vibrant, effervescent, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, refreshing, long finish that presents nuances of hints of ginseng and gentian, green apple skin and blood orange, and honey finish. A pleasing, clever, and sophisticated combination citrus and herbal flavors that is sure to please Negroni fans.

Specialty ciders include all ciders that do not fit neatly into other categories. These ciders may be barrel-aged, dry-hopped, spiced, made with single or heirloom apple varietals, fermented with an exotic or wild yeast strain, or any combination of these techniques. Ciders in this category have a diverse set of flavors, aromas and alcohol content. Most specialty ciders have seasonal or limited availability, but are becoming more readily available year-round as the category grows in popularity.
