Cupcake Brut Rose Sparkling Wine France 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Vanilla, cherry, and very bubblegum scented with some floral notes and an underlying sweetness. Big bubbles in the mouth, easy and simple with the same vanilla, cherry, and bubblegum notes found on the nose. Finishes with some sticky strawberry fruit and a certain coarseness. 84pts

Our winery is located in Monterey County, California where warm days give way to cool nights as the fog rolls in off of the Pacific Ocean.

Our winery is located in Monterey County, California where warm days give way to cool nights as the fog rolls in off of the Pacific Ocean. It’s this cooling influence that slows the growing process, increasing the time the grapes “hang” on the vine and thereby allow our grapes to mature a little slower than in hotter regions. Slow growth and cool weather leads to a more balanced level of acids and sugars, thereby adding to the complexity and structure of the wines of the Central Coast. This region is poised to become one of the newest and most exciting viticultural opportunities in the coming years. This slow pace continues in our cellar where we take the time to craft wines that are complex, rewarding and hand made. Gentle pressing, cool fermentation, malolactic fermentation, and long barrel aging in small barriques allow us to elevate our wines so that they are rich, creamy and downright delicious. Our winemaker, Adam Richardson has since added a few additional wines from other cool climate regions to augment our portfolio and match up with additional cupcake profiles, like our Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Yakima Valley Riesling, and Mendoza Malbec. Go ahead, live deliciously. Read less

Sweet strawberry aromas. Quite dry with a hint of sweet cherry.

Some sweet strawberry and citrus notes, big bubbles fill the mouth, simplistic, short finish, little complexity.
