Products



  Kinkead Cellars Riesling
Hand-harvested on September 29th, honeysuckle, banana, peach and ripe pear notes precede a flinty finish. This racy wine's floral front palate and sweetness balance its crisp acidity. The grapes were cold-fermented to preserve aromatic components. Serve chilled with cold meats, fresh salads, light cheeses, poultry, veal and Asian cuisine. Residual sugar 1.2%.
  Kinkead Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon
Hand-harvested on October 12th, this dark ruby, well structured, complex wine displays classic Cabernet aromas of cassis, plum and black cherry. Aged in premium French and American oak. Small lot fermentations with hand punch-downs and classic small scale winemaking techniques were used to create this wine. Enjoy with beef, lamb or wild game. Alcohol 15.0% by volume. This wine is stylistically much more similar to big California Cabernets than to our historic European style.
  Kinkead Ridge Revelation
Hand-harvested on September 18th, this winegrower's blend is aromatic and refreshing. The wine has aromas of pineapple, grapefruit and melon, with a honey note and a mineral finish. This zesty wine stylistically reflects a French more than a California character. A classic accompaniment to full-flavored cuisine. The blend consists of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and small quantities of other white vinifera from our experimental block. Limited production.
  Kinkead Ridge Viognier/Roussanne
A Rhone blend of aristocratic varieties. The Viognier was hand-harvested on September 27 and the Roussanne on October 2. This complex and enticing wine has the kiwi and guava aromas of Roussanne merging with the orange blossom and golden raisin aromas of Viognier. An excellent, dry wine with fish, shellfish, and poultry. Serve slightly chilled.as you would an aperitif wine. 62% Viognier, 38% Roussanne, a slightly higher percentage of Viognier than last year.
  Kinkead Ridge White Revelation
Hand-harvested on September 20th, this winegrower's blend is crisp, bright, aromatic and refreshing. The wine has aromas of pineapple, grapefruit and melon, with a honey note and a mineral finish. This zesty wine with bracing acidity stylistically resembles a French more than a California character. A classic accompaniment to full-flavored cuisine. In 2007 this blend was predominantly Roussanne. This is like the 2006, a Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blend with other miscellaneous whites including a small amount of Chardonnay.
  River Village Cellars Cabernet Franc
Hand-harvested on October 11, this wine displays a harmonious complexity with raspberry overtones and modest tannins. The grapes were cold-soaked, fermented in small bins with hand punch-downs, and aged in premium American and French oak barrels. A fine companion for beef, turkey, pork and richly flavored stews. Medal winner, American Wine Society International Competition.
  River Village Cellars Syrah
Hand-harvested on October 18, this spicy, intense and luxurious wine has excellent balance and notes of earth, plum, cloves, black pepper and dark berry. The grapes were cold-soaked, fermented in small bins, and punched down by hand. Oak-aged. Excellent with beef, lamb, braised chicken and spicy cuisine. Medal winner, American Wine Society International Competition.
  River Village Cellars Traminette
Hand-harvested October 4th. Traminette is a new world hybrid grape with a pronounced varietal character reminiscent of Gewurztraminer from Alsace, which is one of its parents. Its fruity and spicy nutmeg flavors, floral aroma and refreshing finish make it a perfect match for Southwest and Asian cuisine. Served on its own, well chilled, it makes a great sipping wine. 100% Traminette. Grapes grown in the Ohio River Valley by Rock Springs Vineyard, Kentucky.
