Cupcake Vineyards Merlot San Luis Obispo County 2007
Wine Tasting 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.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

This is a simple red wine to have with dinner at home. A good value and worth picking up for everyday drinking.
Surprise taste. Full bodied with taste of cherries and mocha. Nice finish.
An average wine, but quite good for the price. I don't get a whole lot on the nose, but the dark cherry flavor is quite good. A good wine for many cheeses (I drank it with a mellow brie).
Not horrible, a little on the heavy side, syrupy.
A good wine that has appeal to a wide range of tastes.
Bought a bottle locally. It's rich, full and perfect with a thick Omaha steak.
