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

Perfumy floral nose over blueberry fruit with some gingery wood spice tones. Lightish body for a Petite, but balanced with crisp tannins and nice acid balance. It's a bit thin across the mid-palate but offers up some nice zesty cranberry fruit with a short finish. 84pts

Dry. My untrained nose picks up very little.

    Heavy aroma of oak with hints of blueberry. Full bodied, very strong tannins, and heavy oak flavor. Also had notes of black pepper and coffee. A little harsh, but has the potential to age well.

    I love my red wine, but don't typically like deep full bodied reds. I received this Cupcake Petite Sirah as a gift, and it is amazing! This wine is a delicious blend of mixed berries with hints of espresso and chocolate. It goes perfectly with a meat dish or pasta dish, but also does just fine by itself! It's smooth, it's full of flavor, and I would say it's more on the lighter side rather than a deep full bodied. I'd recommend this wine to anyone who loves a good smooth red wine, but also likes a bit of sweetness :)

    Cupcake Vineyards Petite Sirah Central Coast 2007 750ML


    External Review

    We harvested these tiny berries in the early morning and trucked them over to the crush pad. The Central Coast is well known for warm days and cool nights, which allow the fruit to fully develop. This wine starts with aromas of pomegranate, boysenberry and blueberries that evolve into flavors of spice accentuated by rich dark chocolate. With a creamy, rich body, this wine finishes in a long and soft manner. Serve it with a juicy pork tenderloin with a Petite Sirah reduction. - Winery
