New award-winning Ohio wines now available

Lucky us, we have a supply of the following wines at Sher-Bliss. 

Kinkead Ridge medals at AWS… Results are in from the 2009 American Wine Society, Commercial Competition. 86 wineries entered 476 wines. All results are posted at the link below. There were no Double Gold medals this year for anyone. I think this judging was pretty severe, which is as it should be.

2007 CABERNET SAUVIGNON: …2 Gold Medals, 9 Silver Medals, and 12 Bronze Medals. Kinkead Ridge 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon garnered a Silver. Our wines were judged very young, just one month after release. The two gold medals for Cabernet Sauvignon went to a 2004 and 2006 vintage, wines that had the benefit of bottle age. In 2007, our 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon won a silver at AWS, and several months later with some bottle age, it got a gold at the Finger Lakes competition. Due to short supplies, the 2007 wine will be sold out before Finger Lakes occurs this year.

2007 CABERNET FRANC: 1 Gold Medal, 6 Silver Medals, 8 Bronze Medals. 2007 Kinkead Ridge Cabernet Franc blended with Petit Verdot garnered a Silver.
