Cupcake Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast 2009
Sweet, light, delicate, and smooth, with a pleasing aftertaste. A great white!
Lots of grapefruit. I know it's cliche for New Zealand but it's true. Great QPR. Perfect for sipping outside in the springtime.
Bright yellow-gold, aromas of apple pear, citrus and vanilla, lively flavor notes of yellow apples, tropical fruits and vanilla spice.
Scent is earthy and tangy lime zest. A bit spritzy, with grapefruit and mild honeysuckle flavors. Has a dry, tart finish.
Just not a fan of this wine.
Chocolate covered dark cherries ... not too complex but it is delicious. A bit sweet on the finish as is the Cupcake style, riper grapes and a bit of residual sugar seem to be the signature style of the winemaker and the Cupcake wines have been very consistently good.
This one is another winner from Cupcake. For 10 bucks it has a very bold and flavorful classic Chardonnay profile with oak, fruit, and butter proportioned just right. A pleasant fruity complexity on the finish is reminiscent of tropical fruits. Highly recommended. I don't even like chardonnay usually but I sure like this one.
