Deep mauve color. Fruity, vinous aromas of zinfandel, cassis, dandelion, and slate with a slightly chewy, crisp, spritzy, dry-yet-fruity light body and a smooth, rapid cranberry relish and puffed rice finish. A food-friendly cider that will be a solid holiday feast pairing.

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.
