Food Pairings for Cupcake Vineyards Merlot San Luis Obispo County
I'm not a huge fan of Merlot but for $8 or $9 I paid for it, this wine is all cherries and cinnamon, two flavors I just love. I suspect Cupcake might be adding some spice to make their wines so tasty, but everything I've tried with the Cupcake label has been excellent. I almost want to go higher than 4/5 but I guess the wines are just not complex enough to earn a higher score. For the price I don't think you can do better than anything with the Cupcake label. I would put any Cupcake wine I've tried recently right up there with Clos du Bois, another great label that is usually $15, versus Cupcakes $9 price tag.
