Kinkead Ridge the only southern Ohio winery listed in the newly
published American Wines by Jancis Robinson. We're ticked off! They just
describe the same old Northern Ohio

"I’m behind, way behind in keeping up with this site. No excuses,
although my lapse is due to my love for local wine. I’ve been working
tirelessly on an exciting, new website supporting the industry. I hope
to share the news next week (so stay tuned). In the meantime, I hope to
return to regularly scheduled programming this month.
I could be accused of sounding like a broken record, but I can’t help it
when I describe Kinkead Ridge. I’ve raved about their wines since my

Cellartracker.com review of the 2010 Cabernet
"Deep ruby red; cedar and floral nose; red and
black fruits, herbs, big tannins and good acidity making for a medium
finish. While the nose isn't jumping out of the glass like the 2008 did,
this has a great, well balanced palate. I'm a big Bordeaux fan and I'm
not exaggerating when I say that if tasted blind, I would have guessed
right bank Bordeaux...seriously. (100 views). 92 points by the
