CIDER OVER MERLOT SKINS
R.O’NEILL LATTA | 2020
Cider on Merlot Skins
Mary’s Orchard, Corralitos California
This field blend cider was made from Mary’s Orchard apples in Corralitos, forgotten centurion apples that have been untouched for over 15 years, fermented and then passed through Merlot pomace. The Merlot was picked from Brent’s Pinot Vineyard in Santa Cruz on September 6, 2020. This is a bruised cider, with a purple iridescence and light structuring to compliment the fresh, fragrant apple-blossom aromatics.
