First Look - Cupcake Vineyards


And to cap off the week we got a sneak peak at a new value brand called Cupcake Vineyards. The winemaker, Adam Richardson, stopped by with the wines and we had a chance to chat while we tasted through the line-up.

The Central Coast Chardonnay and Merlot are being released this month with a Petite Sirah and Washington State Riesling soon to follow. These are a super set of wines, much leaner and more focused than one generally gets at this price point and all of them had very expressive yet fresh flavors and fabulous balance. Having a party this summer? Getting married? Just want to keep a stock of good wine on hand? Check out Cupcake Vineyards. I can't wait for the release of the Petite Sirah!

2007 Cupcake Vineyards Central Coast Chardonnay
Nicely fresh on the nose with classic oak spice tones on the nose and a creamy mouthfeel support juicy orange and peachy fruits. Refreshing acids keep this lively and engaging.

2006 Cupcake Vineyards Central Coast Merlot
Full of red plum and red berry fruit this is a lovely, light and bright Merlot, very food friendly and perfect for sipping on the patio.

    Just tried the chardonnay - a great wine for the price. Typical CA Chard - lots of oak, spice and apple flavors. For under $10 its a good deal.

    When will your wine be coming to TX. I can not get it shipped because of TABC laws.

  • Chardonnay very pleasant at this price, though it's running closer to $10 in Central VA.
