The 2013 white wines were released Memorial Day weekend 2014. The 2012 red wines (all River Village Cellars this year) were released Labor Day Weekend 2014. The 2013 River Village Chambourcin was released the Saturday after Thanksgiving at the Annual Barrel Tasting.

2013 Kinkead Ridge Viognier/Roussanne A Rhone style blend with the kiwi and guava aromas of Roussanne merging with the orange blossom and golden raisin aromas of Viognier. An excellent dry blend with fish, shellfish and poultry. Production: 257 cases. Alcohol 14.1%  
2013 Kinkead Ridge White Revelation This winegrower's blend is crisp, refreshing and aromatic. Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple and melon, with a honey note and a mineral finish. Classic accompaniment to shellfish and mildy acidic cheeses. Production: 146 cases. Alcohol 13.3% Silver medal, Indy International Wine Competition.
2013 Kinkead Ridge Riesling Honeysuckle, apple and rose petal notes precede a flinty finish. This racy wine's floral front palate and sweetness balance its crisp acidity. Food friendly, serve chilled with cold meats, fresh salads, light cheeses, poultry, veal and Asian cuisine. Residual sugar 1.2%. Production: 179 cases. Alcohol 11.4%  

2013 River Village Cellars Seyval

Seyval, a hybrid grape, has a characteristic citrus element, as well as a minerality that may be compared to white burgundy. Similar to a Chablis, with notes of grapefruit, green apple and melon. Harvested at McCafferty Bridge Vineyard.Production: 87 cases. Alcohol 13.8%  
2013 River Village Cellars Traminette A new world hybrid grape with a pronounced character reminiscent of Gewurtztraminer from Alsace. Harvested at McCafferty Bridge Vineyard. Its fruity and spicy nutmeg flavors, floral aroma and refreshing finish make it a perfect match for southwest and Asian cuisine. Residual sugar 2.1% Production: 185 cases. Alcohol 13.2%  
2012 River Village Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Hand harvested on October 17, 2012, this well-structured wine displays classic aromas of red fruit and black cherry. Aged in premium American and French oak barrels. Enjoy with beef, lamb, pork, or braised chicken. Production: 172 cases. Alcohol 14.5% Review: August 2014

2012 Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a much darker wine than the Cabernet Franc. Its also very closed up at the moment and it took a lot of swirling and a second glass to get the aromas flowing. When it did open up it was with earthy aromas rather than fruit. The taste was red cherries like the Cabernet Franc, but there was an underlying darker element as well. It seemed most like black raspberries to me. Again, there was good tannin and acid and there was a much longer finish. In six months or a year I will prefer this wine to the Cabernet Franc, but it still has some growing up to do in the bottle. 172 cases produced. 14.5% alcohol. $14.99

2012 River Village Cellars Cabernet Franc This wine displays a harmonious complexity with cherry overtones and modest tannins. Aged in premium American and French oak barrels. A fine companion for beef, turkey, pork and richly flavored stews. Production: 174 cases. Alcohol 14.3% Review: August 2014

2012 Cabernet Franc. This wine actually made me smile. There is a good amount of vanilla and oak in the nose, but they were fresh aromas. There is a lot of up front flavors of red cherry and spice. There's good acidity and tannin to hold every thing together. When the flavors faded at the end this was like drinking a rose' wine with more extracted flavors. This is simply a happy wine. It's also not one to save for a long period of time, though I will stow away a bottle for the future. 174 cases produced. 14.3% alcohol and $14.99.

2013 River Village Cellars Chambourcin A French-American hybrid grape. Full bodied, deep-colored dry red wine with notes of cassis, berry fruit and plum. Barrel aged nine months. McCafferty Bridge Vineyards. Pair with beef, lamb, wild game or richly flavored cheeses. Production: 111 cases. 
Alcohol 12.8%
