Brilliant old gold color. Earthy, toasty aromas and flavors of baked apples and cashews, cashew fruit, nut brittle, and cherry butter with a supple, crisp, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, complex, medium-long finish with suggestions of grass and hay, nutskin, melon rind, and dusty root vegetables finish. A refreshing, pure, dry French style cider that will pair nicely.

French-style ciders range in alcohol from 3-10% and are typically full-bodied with lively carbonation and subtle sweetness. This category includes all French-produced and inspired ciders including Normandy-style ciders. These ciders are often available in larger format bottles enclosed with a cork and cage. French-style ciders are more wine-like than most styles, and can be incredibly complex with lively acidity making them a perfect pair for a wide array of cuisines.
