Cupcake Vineyards Chardonnay San Luis Obispo County 2006

Member Review by HokieWolf:

A bit acidic in the front, Medium to fuller body with a dry finish. Did no linger long and left palet with a tartiness.

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.

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

Purple in color. Scents of cherry, spice (pepper) hint of vanilla. Initial sharpness, tad dry, picked up vanilla on taste as well

I was surprised by this wine. Very smooth with a good flavor and silky finish.

I was very suprised when I tried this how much I ended up liking it. It was tasty, smooth definately a new go to for an inexpensive cab. I also tried their Merlot (which I usually prefer) and didn't like it as much as the cab.

Not terrible, but nothing special at the same time.

I like it, don't love it. Had it once and thought it was a bit better so I purchased again.
