Kinkead Ridge Cabernet Franc 2005

Eight years out from the vintage and this wine is delicious.  Bright fruit flavors, great acid, good tannin and moderate alcohol.   One can definitely taste the American oak but it fits very well with this wine.  Totally balanced and very easy to drink - especially with a plate of beef Stroganoff.   

My all time favorite Kinkead Ridge red wine was the 2005 Syrah.  This wine is less than half a step behind that one.  No question that the 2005 reds are all good.  I still have some Cabernet and one Syrah left.

2005 Kinkead Ridge Ohio River Valley Cabernet Franc.  13.2% alcohol and $18.
