2/17/2014
NEWS FLASH! Kinkead Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon wins Silver Medal and 89 points (highly recommended) at the Bordeaux World Wine Competition run by the Beverage Tasting Institute in Chicago. Tasting notes... "Garnet violet color. Pleasant aromas and flavors of floral black raspberry preserves, chocolate nuts, and peppery spice with a dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tangy, green apple and mineral accented finish. A very nice sipper with fine structure for the table too." Drink now-3 years. All the other 89 point wines appear to be from California, and all but one (at $19.99, and a 2012) were more expensive than ours. All results will be posted on tastings.com on March 3.
