Sips: Wine



Kinkead Ridge, which grows vinifera grapes near Ripley in Brown County, has made great strides since introducing its wines last year. Two noteworthy vintages have just been released: a red Bordeaux-style blend called Revelation ($17.95) and a white Rhone-style blend dubbed Viognier ($14.95). Both are dry. The 2002 Revelation is mostly cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon with a bit of petit verdot. Aromas of cherry and blackberry are mirrored in the taste, along with spice, licorice and strong tannins on the tongue. The 2003 Viognier includes rousanne grapes. It has aromas of honeysuckle and apricot, with a taste of lemon, lime and orange.
