The following are "Tasting Notes" provided by a local Winemaker at a prestigious Sonoma County, CA vineyard.
"The Cherry Kola bud has enticing aromas of raspberry framboise and honey dew, with just a hint of freshly cut grass. Crushed pine needles and esters of lemon rind seem to fill the room that it dries in. While preparing the Cherry Kola for a joint, our noses were filled with aromas of red Starburst and lemon tree leaves. Smelling our fingers afterwards reminded us of kiwi fruit and gooseberry with suggestions of sweet tree sap. The initial drag brings an explosion of bing cherry and lemon verbena flavors. On the exhale there is a really smooth texture with suggestions of a kola nut, sarsaparilla and raspberry tea. The intense flavors leave the palate with a pleasurable finish of freshly sliced lemon and lavender."
