Cupcake Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Wine Tasting Notes We work hard to bring you the biggest, richest Chardonnay from California's desirable Central Coast, where the sun drenched grapes create full and elegantly textured wines. Decadent layers of butter, cream, bright citrus and vanilla melt into a balance of oak and subtle spice. In other words: Delicious. Serve chilled with crab cakes, seared Ahi tuna on waffle crackers or fresh-baked French bread and cheese.
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.
External Reviews for Cupcake Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
Supple ripe pear and white peach notes, with subtle spicy nuances, make this a soft, easy-drinking wine. Drink now.
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.

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.
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
