Potter’s Cider Noveau – Sapling Series 
750 ml 9% ABV
Modern Rose
$14.99 Union Market, Richmond, VA
Rank Overall: 8th/29 Rose: 1st/7

This is Potter’s Cider Noveau from their Sapling Series. It is a modern rose cider that utilizes the skins of petit verdot and merlot wine grapes during fermentation. The cider is then aged in a French oak barrel for 4 months.
The color is a dark burgundy but a touch lighter from your typical red wine.
Carbonation level is light/moderate that dissipates relatively quick as the cider warms in the glass.
Aromas include red wine, sweet grapes, hints of warmth, lavender, and vanilla.
Semi-Dry.
There’s obvious heavy notes of red wine but without the heat of high alcohol that most red wines include. The lack of heat draws me to want more. There’s a moderate amount of acidity of tart raspberries. On the finish there’s heavy tannins that linger forever.
As most red wines, I believe the best time to drink this would be during the fall/winter. It does provide some notes of warmth.
I believe this would be best paired with chicken and lightly spiced red meats.
I may buy this again down the road. I would need to be in the mood for this one or to be around wine drinkers to share it with. I would certainly drink it again, but I may not pursue with other options present.
I think this is an interesting cider. It was an easy review with most notes of aromas and taste very present and definable. As stated above it provides a lot of wine flavor without the heat of alcohol. For this reason, I really enjoyed it. It sits at an average value at $15 for a 750 ml bottle. At the time of this review I ranked it as the best Rosé and #8 overall.

One of things I love about my speidel fermenters is that little spigot at the bottom. It makes it very easy (a little too easy) to pull small samples from time to time. I got to sample my black twig and my wild fermented winesap tonight. Both still need time, especially the winesap. It still has a touch of sweetness to it. I feel the winesap is going to be interesting and I may need to keep some of it as a single varietal cider. The black twig is closer to completion and I have high expectations. It’s smooth and smells and taste of spices and finishes with its unique tang. I can’t wait til this spring and summer to start drinking them!

I completely agree! An article featuring Diane Flint @foggyridgecider and this section discussing terminology. I coach swimming and wording is so important in my field. There is no slow and fast, there’s fast and faster. We don’t taper, we championship prep. I admit in the past I’ve used “craft” cider and probably still will use it to describe some ciders. I can see how craft is used as a beer term, but some ciders are designed to be drank like a beer or made to appeal to the beer drinkers. They often take an extra few steps to add other ingredients and therefore I see these ciders being crafted.
On the other side though, I like utilizing “fine” ciders to push ciders that are meant to be savored. That are meant to be looked at, sniffed, tasted, and analyzed. These ciders are pure apples and describe the land, climate, their age, and their cidermaker. Their flavor and aromas are a snapshot of where they came from.

Took a walk down Cary Street yesterday and stopped in at @sugartwine ☕️Nick enjoyed a latte (pictured) and a peanut butter cookie and I loved my chai tea latte and a chocolate chip sea salt cookie 🍪 The perfect spot to catch up with a friend, curl up with a book, or get some work done. We’ll be back!
