Apple Black Red
Apple Black Red is our take on a traditional Apple Brandy. It features a combination of three apples, highlighted by the Gold Rush apple being the dominate fruit. These heirloom apples come from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, which is known as one of the premier apple growing regions throughout Virginia.
Apple Black Red features nice floral notes on the nose, with a bit of heat that will be followed by a mellow apple flavor on the palette.
