The 09 was not as good as the 08, the 09 tasted more like a typical average merlot like Blackstone. That 08 was really good. Maybe this needs a year or two in the bottle.

Luscious fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry. These primary flavors are augmented with secondary flavors of vanilla, toasty oak and spices including clove and nutmeg. The addition of complementary varietals contributes to a velvety mouth feel and lingering, smooth finish. This wine is at its best if enjoyed within a year of release, but should be able to age in the bottle for up to three years.

Tasting Notes - Cupcake Vineyards works hard to craft the richest, smoothest and elegantly-textured wines. This full-bodied yet smooth merlot displays supple tannins with favors of red cherries that evolve into decadent levels of cocoa.

Winemaker's Notes:

Cupcake vineyard works hard to craft the richest, smoothest and elegantly-textured wines. This full-bodied yet smooth merlot displays supple tannins with flavors of red cherries that evolve into decadent layers of cocoa and espresso and a smooth layered finish. Reminiscent of that chocolate cherry caked that used to call for you at the corner bakery. Serve with pork tenderloin with a port-fig reduction sauce or decadent chocolate molten cake.
