Koolaid with alcholic content. Thin, weak, short finish. Just about all the stuff other wines have and this one does not. Wouldn't waste money on this inferior product a second time, I tasted it on someone elses ratings. Move on people to something better. Welches Grapejuice is more satisfyiny. The 2 glass rating was made to be polite

Really enjoyable for the price point. Nice oak, perhaps a bit too heavy on it though. It does mask the fruit somewhat, but all in all, it does drink like a more costly bottle of chard.

Rather dull and flat. The nose is promising and characteristic of a NZ SB, but the palate doesn't deliver. It tastes watered down. Definitely not worth it at the price.

Great wine for the price. Rich and buttery yet a little lighter than some chardonnay. Nice balance and easy to drink

Great every day Chardonnay - buttery but not too heavy on the palate. Very drinkable and would be a crowd-pleaser at a party

A very drinkable wine, with a sweet, butter taste.

Rich and enticing, the Cupcake Cabernet Sauvignon is a balance between generous profiles of fruit and oak. This full-bodied yet smooth Cabernet Sauvignon displays soft tannins, with primary fruit flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and plums. The dark fruits melt with the flavors of mocha and toasty oak before ending with a long and silky finish.

Citrus blossom and grapefruit pith offers fresh, snappy acidity and tangerine-laced flavors that end with a clean, refreshing finish. Drink now.

Cupcake Chardonnay was crafted to emphasize the Central Coast's creamy and structured Chardonnay character. It starts off with a touch of apple, a hint of tropical fruits and is complimented by a balance of vanilla and spice. We used malolactic fermentation with aging in small barrels to provide a rich mid palate that develops into a long, smooth, satisfying finish. This wine pairs well with crab cakes, seared Ahi tuna on waffle crackers or fresh-baked French bread and cheese. - Winery

Winemaker Notes - Cupcake vineyard works hard to craft the richest, smoothest and elegantly-textured wines. This full-bodied yet smooth cabernet sauvignon displays soft tannins, with primary fruit flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and plums. These layers of dark fruits melt with the tastes of mocha and toasty oak and end with a long and silky finish. Serve with baked brie drizzled with honey or petite filet mignon with a cabernet reduction sauce.

Winemaker's Notes:

Winery notes: Our vineyard works hard to bring you the zestiest most refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from the cool Marlborough valley. Here the grapes mature slowly giving them layers of complexity and a vibrant zing reminiscent of your grandma's lemon chiffon cake. The flavors are integrated delighting the senses with layer upon layer of Meyer lemons Key limes and a finish that awakens the appetite. Serve chilled with oysters on a half shell or with a rich and succulent Lobster Risotto.

Tasting Notes:

Cupcake vineyard works hard to craft the richest, smoothest and elegantly-textured wines. This full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon shows soft tannins, with primary fruit flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and cassis. These levels of dark fruits melt with the tastes of cocoa and toasty oak and ends with a long, smooth and silky finish.
