A Good Bottle

Kinkead Ridge
A small, lamb roast called for Cabernet Sauvignon so I opted for the 2011 Kinkead Ridge to see how it was doing.  It's doing quite well.

All the loose ends have come together here.  The aromas are great with hints of fruit and wood and a bit of cinnamon.  Dark cherry and plum flavors were strong, but there were some herbal tones to compliment them.  Moderate body with good acidity, and just about perfect now.

With some roasted butternut squash and a few green beans it was a very good meal.
